Our education courses will enrich your understanding of how people learn. Our lecturers have all taught in the classroom and bring a wealth of practical experience to your studies. With a focus on employability, we offer both placement and theory opportunities for you to develop your confidence and career potential.
Placements are available in a number of different settings, ranging from mainstream primary schools, schools for children with special educational needs, hospitals, prisons, Pupil Referral Units and theatres. Past students have worked at the National Theatre, Saatchi Gallery, forest school and special schools.
Unique to LSBU, you can complete your placement in a mainstream school or alternative education setting.
We collaborate with psychologists to create exciting course modules.
Our facilities contain all the equipment you'd expect to find in a primary school.
Visit us on our Open Days and discuss your study options with our academics, talk to current students about their experience of LSBU, take a tour of our vibrant central London campus and experience our industry-standard facilities and student residences.
We have extensive links with schools, alternative education settings and the creative industries, as well as organisations such as The British Dyslexia Association, Achievement for All and researchers in the field.
