Why study education?
How and where people learn, and what influences that learning, is constantly evolving, and with digital technology opening up new learning tools and experiences, it’s a particularly interesting time to work in this field.
Perhaps most importantly, learning isn’t just something that takes place in schools. Designing and improving how learning happens has relevance in all areas of work and society, so graduates will leave well equipped for employment across diverse sectors and roles.
