Welcome from the Director of Graduate Studies

As Director of Graduate Studies, I am very proud of the exciting intellectual community my colleagues and our students create here in Oxford.

Our department has been in existence for almost 100 years, and is an integral part of the Social Science Division, one of the largest groupings of social scientists in Europe.

We offer a set of internationally recognized MSc courses, two postgraduate diplomas, an innovative new Masters in Learning and Teaching, and an ‘outstanding’ PGCE. We also have a thriving doctoral programme, with around 80 doctoral students who work closely with the department’s academic staff and its research groups.

We think we have a great deal to offer to students keen to learn and research in Education. Click on the relevant links on the left-hand menu to read about what we provide for taught courses and research students. We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours warmly,

Professor Steve Strand
Director of Graduate Studies
