I will try to challenge the way that you look at educational issues, the world and yourself.
My management responsibilities have included:
Education Studies is a subject that allows you to understand that education is not limited to the four walls of the classroom. You will be learning about psychology, philosophy, politics, sociology and other exciting social sciences in order to be able to recognise why education is so important to undersntad (and change) our societies, ourselves and our world. The main aim of our programme is to stimulate the emergence of critical education professionals that enjoy working with other people and changing others' lives!
