Brunel has one of the longest established education departments in the country and is a leading research centre for work in supportive education that receives high ratings from the UK’s leading benchmarkers such as Ofsted.
You will be taught by a team of enthusiastic and supportive academic staff, many of which are active researchers on a variety of education topics.
Your learning will take place in groups of different sizes and compositions to provide a variety of experiences as you get to know and interact with a group of likeminded students as you develop on the course.
You will be taught using a variety of teaching and learning techniques that include: lectures, seminars (to promote discussions and group work), tutorials, student presentations, practical sessions, and for the placement modules, workplace mentors and tutor support.
Work-based experience is designed to provide you with opportunities to apply and enhance your learning and research skills in professional settings where you will do range of directed tasks and research activities at each level of study.
A great deal of your learning will take place in your own independent learning and research where you will develop a range of study skills, research-related skills and critical thinking during directed reading, reflective exercises and preparation for assessments and work-based experiences.
Should you need any non-academic support during your time at Brunel, the Student Support and Welfare Team are here to help.
