Education studies

**Why Warwick?**
The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards.

Today, more than 26,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you.

**What is Education Studies?**
Can education make the world a better place? Is it at the heart of the development of our society? Then the Education Studies degree could be for you.
The course is based around the core threads of learning, society and culture and is designed for students who have an interest in education, but also for those who have a broad social science interest with a desire to make a difference.

The course allows you to get to the heart of a range of both historical and contemporary issues which shape the UK and global education systems. You’ll unpick issues of social justice, inclusion, diversity and equality in education and consider the impact of social policy in the management of these issues. By the end of your course you, you will have developed your ability to critically reflect on these hot topics, and will have a broad and balanced view supported by theoretical knowledge and research evidence.

You will explore all aspects of education by examining and raising questions such as What is the purpose of education? and Are current education systems fair? The programme offers both practical and theoretical opportunities to explore the nature of education globally in the 21st Century.

**Student Placement Opportunities**
You will have the opportunity to examine education practice in real-world settings through international or UK based placement including:
* Theatres, Libraries and Museums

* Youth Services

* Health care

* Charities

* Schools

* Universities and policy development organisations

**Graduate Careers**
The programme develops a wide range of skills that are invaluable for many socially oriented professions not only in education-related areas but also in a wide range of jobs from social services and theatre management to health care and policy making.

Recent graduates have started their careers in educational practice, the charity sector, youth work, career and skills work, educational publishing, prisons, hospitals, speech therapy, psychology, research and teaching following further PGCE study.

Many also choose to progress onto one of our postgraduate courses including the Educational Leadership and Management MA.

What students say


Sorry, no information to show

This is usually because there were too few respondents in the data we receive to be able to provide results about the subject at this university.

After graduation


The stats in this section relate to the general subject area/s at this university – not this specific course. We show this where there isn't enough data about the course, or where this is the most detailed info available to us.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

When you look at employment stats, bear in mind that a lot of students are already working in education when they take this type of course and are studying to help their career development. This means they already have jobs when they start their course, and a lot of graduates continue to study, whilst working, when they complete their courses. If your course is focused on nursery or early years education, a lot of these graduates go into nursery work or classroom or education assistant jobs; these jobs are not currently classed as 'graduate level' in the stats (although they may well be in the future as classifications catch up with changes in the way we work), and many graduates who enter these roles say that a degree was necessary.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
