English Language Requirements

IELTS band : 6

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

To study at this university, you have to speak English. We advise you to

take an IELTS test.

This programme provides a broad-based platform for the study of key aspects of education, in particular, current concepts, practices and issues. It focuses on the nature of learning and human development and the socio-economic, historical, cultural and political contexts of educational institutions and of the wider society in which learning takes place.

It is also concerned with the differing approaches to knowledge and curricula within institutions, and with evaluating the nature of, and the outcomes arising from, educational processes. This involves debate about the aims of education and the conflicting research paradigms from which educational practices are drawn.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To address the range of inter-disciplinary contributions which make up education studies
  • To further critical and research skills at all levels
  • To develop awareness of issues relevant to education and it's essential role in shaping contemporary society.
