Curriculum Outline on Bachelor of Arts (Honors) Education
The three-year BA (Hons) Education degree combines ideas and research from education, psychology, sociology, philosophy and history. It has been designed for both UK based (the University of Birmingham) and international students who have academic interests in education or aspirations to work with children and young people in a variety of fields. There is a compulsory vocational placement during the second year.
The modules on the BA (Hons) Education course explore how people, and especially children, develop and learn in their social and cultural contexts. They are constantly updated to include new research, which meets the needs of the sector and recognizes the UK’s evolving education policy and practices.
You will have the option to join the Education Society, run by students, which aims to bring together people with a common interest in Education. They host a number of social and career opportunity events throughout the year.

To prepare for the placement you will attend workshops in the Spring of the previous academic year and then negotiate your own placement in an educational context or setting. A minimum of 70 hours of placement learning is expected, although many students do significantly in excess of this. The placement is undertaken at the end of the summer term of the previous academic year to when the module is assessed, over the following summer holiday period or in the early autumn term of the year in which the module is assessed. The assignment is a 4000-word reflective learning journal, and you are carefully prepared for writing this.
Recent and past placements have been undertaken in a range of settings, for example: as voluntary teaching assistants in schools; shadowing an education professional; working on an educational research project; leading educational activities on a summer camp or language school; shadowing a prison educator; working in a tutorial school and helping in an outdoor education centre. Placements can be based in Myanmar or in another country overseas. A risk assessment process will help you plan safely for your placement.
