About the School of Education
The School of Education is one of the biggest in the UK and has a long-standing reputation for research and professional development.
The School provides programmes for all phases of Education, from initial teacher training to advanced research degrees. Our courses offer experienced professionals the opportunity to obtain further qualifications through various learning methods, full-time and part-time taught courses, distance learning and by research. Our higher degree courses attract national and international students resulting in a vibrant professional and cultural diversity that enhances the sense of academic community as well as the quality of teaching and learning.
The School is extremely active and has been notably successful in the last few years in attracting a wide range of research projects and funding from a variety of national and international funding bodies. Such funding has supported a number of major projects, particularly within primary education, teacher education and citizenship.
