[Intro music] My name is Myrrh Domingo, and I’m Head of Undergraduate
Provision at the Institute of Education. The Institute of Education
is known around the world for its research power. The range of scholars that come
here, an international perspective, a global outlook, I think is a key premise for
a lot of the undergraduate programmes that we create. [Georgina Sánchez Moles]
The main reason I chose the IOE was because
of its reputation, it scores really high in
most of the rankings. [Leyla Osman] If you’re really
interested in Education, there’s no place like the IOE. Each department has all the
top researchers in the building, present and some of them are giving you lectures, you go to the library and
pick up a book and 99% of the time they are at the university. You can just send an email
and say you know I read your work and
I’m really interested to talk about it further
and 100% of the time they agree. I absolutely loved it
when I first visited. It was such a wonderful
experience to see the kind of passion that
people have for teaching and learning and working with their students. [Zura Ibrahim Wafir]
You establish what you’re learning from the lecture
more in the seminar and I really like how
small it is because then you could really get
a chance to know the people around you
as well as get more one-on-one teaching from
the seminar leaders as well. [Myrrh] The location of the
Institute is key of course. Being based centrally in
London means that they have opportunities to
work with different partners but also to have
access to a range of facilities. [Agata Plasa] Being in the
middle of London but having peers from
all over the world, being able to discuss
different ideas with everybody is a really nice thing. [Myrrh] So, developing
a diverse community of students and experiences
is something that’s very important to us so
as the leading centre in Education and Social Sciences
plays host to a range of different
events including lectures, debates that students
are welcome to attend to enrich their learning experiences. [Evi Katsapi] We want
students to be active participants in their learning, we are also working on building
skills that are very important career-wise. So we’re going to offer
our students transferable skills which can be used
later in their careers. [Myrrh] Some of our students
say that when they do finish their
undergraduate studies they realise that there
are even more possibilities of what they could pursue, for example, postgraduate studies. Our students say that
they make lifelong friends that also link into professional networks longer term and a key piece for us is developing lifelong partners
and community of students who we could continually work with.
