What made you decide to undertake the course?
I wanted to pursue a career in teaching. The degree enabled me to continue to study for the PGCE.
What were your expectations of the course, and did you feel that they were met?
I expected a varied course of study which would allow me to develop my knowledge of working in schools and some opportunity to gain school experience. Both of these were met during my time of study.
What particular aspect(s) of your course did you enjoy?
I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of modules available, so much so that I deviated from my original intention to focus on teaching.
Where are you now?
I am an operations manager working for a county-wide disability charity based in Exeter.
What advice would you give to somebody who was considering studying an education course?
The course provides a good foundation to further study if you are considering a teaching or social work career. It is also a flexible course, providing a good range of modular choices and the opportunity to study education in its broadest sense.
