Department of Education


Director of Graduate Studies

As Director of Graduate Studies, I am very proud of the exciting intellectual community that we enjoy here at the Department of Education.

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

We offer a set of internationally recognised MSc courses, including a number of innovative part-time programmes for professional educators, and an ‘outstanding’ PGCE.  We also have a thriving doctoral programme, with around 120 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 programmes below to read about what we provide for taught courses and research students. We look forward to hearing from you.
