School of Education

Focusing on education in its broadest sense

A community of academics and students who are committed to education that inspires learning and enriches communities.

The School of Education offers a high quality research and teaching environment. As a student you’ll be given the opportunity to analyse the political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and technological context of educational theory and practice. You’ll join a dynamic and diverse group of people who share a deep commitment to the investigation and enhancement of educational experiences of individuals, families and communities in a wide range of settings and in collaboration with many different partners. These include schools; early, further and higher education providers, as well as voluntary, public and private sector organisations.
