Education Studies degree focuses on the development of knowledge, confidence and teaching abilities. Modules will cover aspects of teaching such as creativity, philosophy and accessibility, as well as the history, sociology and psychology of education. Students are expected to take a placement at an education institute which will be credited towards the degree. This enables the student to gain the crucial experience of working hands on within a classroom, and regular verbal and written feedback will be given to ensure you know how well you are progressing.
Education Studies graduates will find roles primarily in teaching, but also in sectors such as research, publishing and management that require staff with knowledge about education and training. Education degrees do not generally offer Qualified Teacher Status, but will allow progress on to a Postgraduate Certificate in Education programme (PGCE).
Entry requirements vary for each Irish university, but Indian students will need an IELTS score of 6.0 overall, no lower than 5.5 in each component, and an International Baccalaureate score of 32 points.
