In the UK, it generally takes three years to complete such a bachelor and you can choose to study for it either full-time or part-time. Here are some of the universities that offer bachelor of education programs for undergraduates.
The Institute of Education at University of London (ioe.ac.uk) offers a BA in Education Studies (Honours), a part-time course that will introduce you to the foundations of education, the process of learning, the future of education and the education system in the UK. This program is intended for those people who intend to work in education but cannot commit to a full-time programme. Assessment consists of a mix of coursework, portfolio, examinations and dissertation. For more information about entry requirements and funding options, visit the website of the university.
