Educational Studies is about what we can understand about how people develop and learn throughout their lives. This understanding can help us to design more effective education systems and more effective lessons that result in positive learning outcomes for all students. Through Educational Studies, student teachers will be introduced to foundational education theories and will, eventually, be able to apply these concepts to their own teaching and learning.

career as a qualified teacher.
