Course content

Education Studies (Special and Inclusive Education) at Winchester shares the philosophical and pedagogical underpinnings of the Education Studies programme but specialises in the in-depth study of educational processes related to Special and Inclusive Education.

Programme Content
Students may wish to pursue the three year Single or Combined Honours BA (Hons) Education Studies (Special and Inclusive Education) pathway or the four year Single Honours MEd Stud (Hons) Education Studies (Special and Inclusive Education) pathway.

Approaches to and views of special educational needs, disability and inclusive education are considered through the study of differing disciplines and schools of thought, including disability studies, psychology, sociology, philosophy, political theory and feminism. The education and inclusion of diverse groups of students and young people in schooling and society is examined in relation to questions of social justice, identity, gender, race and politics.

In Year 1, students engage with questions of special needs, disability, inclusion and exclusion in education in connection to their own experiences. In Year 2, students engage with theory that illuminates key issues in disability, impairments, exclusion and inclusion in schooling and society. In Year 3, students draw upon their experience and knowledge to critically evaluate policy, practice and theory in special and inclusive education.

The MEd Stud programme extends the Education Studies approach into Level 7, and engages with research methods and philosophy of educational research. Students have an opportunity to gain Masters credits as they deepen and extend their understanding of programme content through an extended dissertation.

Learning and Teaching
The University aims to shape 'confident learners' by enabling students to develop the skills to excel in their studies here and be transferable to further studies or the employment market. Staff and students form a community of learners who, together and independently, seek to generate and exchange knowledge. Over the duration of the course, students develop independent and critical learning, building confidence and expertise progressively through independent and collaborative research, problem solving, and analysis with the support of staff. Students take responsibility for their own learning and are encouraged to make use of the wide range of available learning resources available.

At the University of Winchester validated programmes may adopt a range of means of assessing your learning. An indicative, and not necessarily comprehensive, list of assessment types you might encounter includes essays, portfolios, supervised independent work, presentations, written exams, or practical performances. The University is committed to ensuring that all students have an equal opportunity to achieve module learning outcomes. As such, where appropriate and necessary, students with recognised disabilities may have alternative assignments set that continue to test how successfully they have met the module's learning outcomes. Further details on assessment types used in the programme you are interested in can be found on the course page, by attending an Open Day/Evening, or contacting our teaching staff.

Students become teachers, work with disabled children and/or adults, specialise in special needs in schooling, and enter caring professions.

At the University of Winchester, we are committed to ensuring all our students gain employability skills to enable you to enter graduate level jobs and pursue the profession of your choice.
