The Department of Education seeks to award two bursaries for students studying for the MSc in
Learning and Teaching. These two action research fellows will be part of the wider Empire,
Migration and Belonging (EMB) project. The Empire, Migration and Belonging (EMB) project, in
partnership with UCL, is kindly supported by Pears Foundation.

Fellows would undertake the MSc Learning and Teaching programme, which includes in the first year
an introduction to action research, among other elements of the course. In their second year,
fellows will be expected to undertake a piece of action based or practitioner research related to the
themes of Empire, Migration and Belonging. They would commit to sharing this work and offer CPD related to their findings.

The value of the award is up to the level of home fees for the MSc Learning and Teaching, which for
2022/2023 will be £6,275. The award is made for the full duration of the period of fee liability for the
course, subject to satisfactory academic progress being made.

To be eligible, applicants must submit their applications to the University of Oxford for the MSc in
Learning and Teaching by 15 April 2022.

Once application decisions have been made, those offered places on the MSc Learning and Teaching
will be invited to apply for the scholarship, which will involve the completion of a scholarship
application form. In the scholarship application, candidates will need to confirm that they will meet
following criteria:

  • They will undertake their own research of teaching practice related to the themes of Empire, Migration
    & Belonging offering evidence of embedded impact.
  • They have a commitment to sharing both their research and practice with others.

Preference will be given to those currently working in non-fee-paying schools in the UK or in
equivalent overseas institutions.
