Introduction

At NDOE, you will have the chance to study a broad range of subjects. At one end of the spectrum are subjects you might consider 'arts' subjects like sociology, at the other end are computer technology and related subjects. Some subjects have a direct vocational or professional link, like education or culture business. All are a useful intellectual training in different approaches to education profession.

All of our degrees allow you to combine study in more than one of these subjects, either for joint honours or with one major subject and one minor. Almost all require or allow you to choose at least one 'outside' option (i.e. from a range of courses in any other subject taught within the School) to enable you to approach your main area of study in a more inclusive and holistic way.

Some degrees give exemptions from certain professional examinations but our degrees are intended to provide a sound intellectual, rather than simply professional, training. We believe that success in your degree and in your subsequent career is best achieved by choosing subjects that interest you and that you are good at.

Course Guide

There are a number of common features to undergraduate/postgraduate programs. Both are grounded in current professional practice and research, and some of credits are allowed to transfer.

We aim to:
  • extend and deepen students' professional knowledge
  • develop students' understanding of specific theories, ideas and practices, and the relationships between perspectives from different disciplines
  • provide a caring, collaborative working environment in which students from different backgrounds can work together and share experiences for their mutual benefit
  • encourage a commitment to intellectual challenge
  • develop students' intellectual, practical and transferable skills
  • help students to read and evaluate research in their subject area, and to conduct systematic research relevant to their professional practice
  • encourage critical thinking
  • encourage students to develop as reflective practitioners.
