Student at Heslington Hall

An invitation to advance your learning

As we reach the end of our course, we would like to invite you to join the University of York and take your learning to the next level.

On our BA in English in Education, you will learn about key educational issues, including how and why English is taught. You’ll explore current debates about and cutting-edge methods for teaching English language and literature in classrooms, theatres, clinics and prisons.

You’ll also study representations of education in literature and analyse their impact on perceptions of education. You’ll consider how fictional depictions of education can shape social awareness, policy and practice.

Alongside rigorous academic study, you’ll gain valuable skills and experience with a range of opportunities for placements and volunteering. Your studies will inform and guide you, giving you practice applying educational theory to real-world situations.

If you’d like to find out more, then register your interest here and we will be in touch with more information.
