We are one of the leading centres for educational research in the UK and Ireland with over half of our research being rated as either 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent' by the independent UK Research Assessment Exercise (2008).
We are an active and innovative School with over 150 doctoral students, supported by our Doctoral Research Centre. Over the last five years, we have attracted over £10 million in external research income. We are centrally involved in a wide range of collaborative networks, locally, nationally and internationally.
We undertake a wide range of research that falls within two broad themes: pedagogy, learning and curriculum; and human rights, equality and social cohesion in education. Underpinning all of our research is a commitment to achieving a real impact in the lives of educators and learners.
We are home to four globally recognised research centres. More information on our work and achievements can be found through the menu to the right.
