EDUCATION DEGREES AT USW

Education is an exciting and rewarding profession. If you are passionate about helping people learn and want practical study with a hands-on approach, this discipline could be right for you. From education theories to child development and behavioural challenges, education study at the University of South Wales will help you make a difference. 

Our education courses have a practical approach. With work placements and clinics on campus, you’ll have every opportunity to gain skills, confidence and experience. If you are interested in teaching learners aged 16+ we offer two teacher training courses - PGCE and PgCE courses in post-compulsory education and training. 

We offer a range of Education short courses for continued professional development opportunities. Additionally, if you have missed out on a B grade at GCSE for English Language and Mathematics, the University offers specific modules to give you the equivalent qualifications.
