Learning is something we do every day. It happens in more places than the classroom and includes community settings, the workplace, art, sport, and even gaming.

Studying Education at UC will give you the knowledge to understand how human development and learning are shaped by the history and context of Aotearoa New Zealand, and the opportunities and challenges we face in designing inclusive and effective educational experiences for everyone.
