About Education at Leicester

The School of Education is one of the largest in the UK and has a long-standing reputation for research and professional development. Formed in 1962, our many years of experience have allowed us to develop effective programmes and training provision, designed to meet our students' needs.

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.

We are a member of the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities. Our College covers a range of subject areas and empowers interdisciplinary collaboration having developed an intellectually-curious, pioneering environment for our 13,000 students and 700 staff, who are changing the world with their exciting and progressive work and research. For more information about the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, please visit the College pages.
