About Education at Nottingham Trent University

This one year, part-time Education degree is designed for people who want to gain graduate status in education and extend their knowledge of issues impacting on education.

The aim of the course is to extend professional knowledge, skills and awareness in the dynamic and changing world of education. There is a mix of taught modules, supported enquiry and specialised study assessments looking at contemporary issues and methods of enquiry.

How you're taught

This is by coursework and assignments.


You are expected to be employed in an educational setting at the time of studying. Therefore the course does not offer placements.
