BA (Hons) Outdoor Education (Accelerated Two Year Degree)
You have a passion for being active outdoors, learning about yourself and how to work as a team. You enjoy acting for the environment and ensuring the safety, welfare and engagement of others.
Our two year BA (Hons) in Outdoor Education is more than a fast-track study to accelerate your career. We provide a programme of learning based in the heart of the Lake District National Park, where you can experience Outdoor Education throughout the seasons. We are responsive to environmental conditions and are privileged to be located amongst 214 mountains, countless rivers, lakes and tarns and close to Cumbria’s coastline.
You will learn with like-minded enthusiasts, building community and culture and enhancing environmental and social connections throughout your studies. Outdoor Education is about; the people, the place and the activity - and we will help you discover all three.
Our degree is a way of life that fully immerses you in outdoor learning, both theory and practice. You will be supported to understand the theory behind outdoor learning philosophy, ethics, environment, challenge and adventure in lecture theatres and seminars, with regular first-hand experience outdoors.
Your ideas and judgement will be valued and developed, and learning concepts will be put into practice during placements in environmental organisations, Outdoor Education Centres and Schools.
Our two-year degree is a fast-track version of the traditional three-year degree, meaning you will gain a full honours degree, but graduate a year earlier. At this point, you will be ready for the world of employment or you may choose to continue your study with us to become a qualified teacher or obtain a master's degree.
Nestled in the Lake District National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Ambleside campus is the perfect place for world-savers, animal lovers, and adventurers. There is never a dull moment when surrounded by such natural beauty and opportunity.
