    just wanted to ask what people think of education studies as a degree? i ultimately want to be a primary school teacher in a special needs school but I've been looking into education studies degrees and i really like the sound of them. has anyone here done on or currently doing one, I'd love to know more information about it

    Education Studies isn't necessarily a degree to take if you want to be a teacher. If you're interested in how people learn, brain development, government education policy, sociology and the social sciences in general then Education Studies is a good degree to do. If you just want to train to be a teacher, you should do a degree in a curriculum subject or maybe Primary Education with QTS.
