Community Education (BA Hons)

This programme is currently under review. We hope to relaunch in the 2021/22 academic year.

The BA (Honours) Community Education degree is a professionally endorsed qualification which enables graduates to apply for a wide range of jobs associated with community education (often also described as community learning and development) in the public and voluntary sectors.

This programme provides both a rigorous academic grounding and appropriate professional preparation through placement and work-based learning experience. The course carries a specific focus on community development, youth work and adult education.


100% for overall student satisfaction

We’re delighted that in the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS), Community Education received 100% for student satisfaction and include some of the many positive comments from our students.

I received top-level tuition. It was an honour to be taught by such people.

Very enlightening, has made me more critically aware.

Overall, it was a very good learning experience. It opened up my mind a lot more than would otherwise have been possible.
