The pursuit of internationally recognised research is one of the major strategic objectives of the School of Education and this informs all aspects of our work. Staff are engaged in individual research projects and a range of collaborative projects within the UK and throughout the world.
Our research activity ensures that undergraduate and postgraduate teaching is informed by cutting edge data and debates informing both the theoretical and professional aspects of our programmes. The School has the largest number of doctoral students within the institution who have the opportunity to be involved in a vibrant culture which is designed to develop the skills as future researchers and academics.
A large number of academic and professional articles, books and comissioned research reports have been produced in the School over the last few years. The School is at the cutting edgde of promoting high profile international conferences, public lectures and events to encourage critical debate. Members of our academic team hold editorial positions of prestigious, international academic journals including: Power and Education; Research in Education: Theory, Policy and Practice; The Journal of Language, Identity and Education; Other Education: The Journal of Educational Alternatives and Educational Action Research.
