04MR17 did a joint honours in education I think and might be able to advise?

I believe in general it focus on the academic study of education - how do people learn, what are the social and economic constraints and influences on learning, different theories of learning and teaching, etc. It's not necessarily a course that provides qualified teacher status (QTS) either - for example Cambridge's education course doesn't.
