Why study education at Bristol?

The Graduate School of Education is a highly-rated research school with a long tradition of using research to inform educational practice. Using educational settings as a test place for discipline-based research, and bringing together educational and psychological perspectives to develop new knowledge and understanding. A recent University-wide student satisfaction survey ranked us amongst the top ten schools in the University and highest in our faculty for overall student satisfaction, a testament to our vibrant, diverse and collegial body of staff and students. The school is consistently ranked highly in national and global league tables. We were ranked 27th in the QS world rankings for education in 2016, putting us in the top five in the UK.

The BSc Education Studies at Bristol is an interdisciplinary social science degree drawing on sociology, psychology, cultural theory, economics, and the learning sciences. You will study education across the life course in diverse settings such as: schools, workplaces, social and cultural spaces, local and online communities.  You will discover how researchers tackle big questions in education: about social change, social justice and changing lives. Successful students will be able to exercise sound judgement and innovate when faced with complex, uncertain and novel problems.

The BSc Psychology in Education course applies psychological perspectives to the wide range of challenges and demands that learners, teachers, psychologists and other professionals face in educational and social contexts. Drawing on our longstanding tradition of high ­quality research and teaching, you will reflect on how to make a difference to education and young people’s development.  You will be able to assess the impact of policy and practice on educational outcomes and wellbeing and use experimental and social research designs to explore the science of the mind and behaviour. Successful students acquire unique skills spanning two rapidly changing disciplines that can usefully inform each other.
