Studies in pedagogy enable insights into how education systems develop, how children and adults learn and what the key issues, policies and debates are in education today. The programme of studies in pedagogy enables students to gain pedagogical knowledge and professional competences for work in care and educational institutions. Alongside the study of pedagogical theory, the programme draws from a range of disciplines, including psychology, philosophy or sociology, which all contribute to the education field. Students can choose from a wide range of specialisations so they can specialise in areas that interest them most. The studies are relevant to those who wish to enter a wide variety of careers as well as those who seek to go on to qualify as teachers.
