Pre Course Reading Lists

Our courses do provide pre-course reading lists. These are indicative of reading that might be useful for your course but are not compulsory. They are provided because students often ask for them but please do not feel that you need to read everything on the list prior to starting your course. When you enrol you will be given library access to print and electronic copies of the latest editions of these books (and many more), so if you are considering buying any of these texts before you arrive, please note that older editions would be suitable to start with.

CAS and Visa Information

Staying Safe at Warwick

The link above tells you more about the University of Warwick's Coronavirus guidelines. Within the Department of Education Studies, we encourage all of our students and staff to be respectful of and sensitive to each other’s wishes or needs, and to be cautious with Covid-19 practices. This means that we keep 1.5 metres distance from each other, and wear a face covering, both when seated in teaching spaces, study and work areas, and in offices; and when moving around the building. We also ask all students and staff to take regular lateral flow tests.

If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, you can find more information about the Sunflower Lanyard scheme for people with hidden disabilities.
