Birmingham City University
The School of Education is involved in a wide range of research in education policy and practice from the Early Years to Further and Higher Education and Lifelong Learning. The Centre for Research in Education engages in education research across all age phases, from Early Years, through Primary and Secondary Schools, FE and Post 16, Higher Education, and lifelong learning.
Applicants for an MPhil need to have the necessary foundation knowledge to pursue the particular specialist issue they have chosen. This is most often a 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree in the relevant area, but students may have the equivalent knowledge because of their practical work experience. Applicants for a PhD will usually need to have an MA, MSc or MPhil degree that has given them the specialist knowledge of the major academic literature, theories and frameworks and awareness of current educational practice to enable them to challenge conventional wisdom in their proposed field of study. They also need to have experience of research methods and design.
Students are assessed by formal written annual review, and submission of a thesis and a formal viva.
