Course content

The School embraces a considerable variety of research activity, from large-scale externally funded programmes to small-scale collaborations with local teachers. Many of these involve links with leading researchers worldwide. Because of our size and the fact that we are not wedded to any one research paradigm, the School can offer research supervision in many areas of educational research.

The School focuses the key areas of research around six distinct but interdisciplinary research centres:

Department specialisms

Special Educational Needs, Professional Learning, Science, mathematics and technology education, Language and literacy, including teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL), Creativity and Challenge, Thinking Skills
