Students range from young adults who have recently completed undergraduate degrees to professionals returning to study after years, and in some cases even decades, working in the field.
Across each of our three postgraduate programmes in Outdoor and Environmental Education (OEE), we normally accept about 40-60 new students every year. We have a similar number of part-time students who are on the programme. A number of our part-time students hold full-time professional positions and combine work and study alongside each other.
'The combination of academic courses and practical courses (especially residential ones) created plenty of opportunities to observe and reflect on different teaching practices. The courses were all very different, and I thoroughly enjoyed that diversity as I believed they helped me reflect and improve my own practice.'
'The programme was more than technical skills, focusing on the foundations of what it means to be an educator. We experience, reflect and learn as individuals and as a group. There is a lot to learn and knowledge within the diverse group. The programme team is supportive and encourages you to explore as much as you can during this process.'
