University of Sussex
In addition to interdisciplinary research with the Department of Social Work and Social Care, we host 3 research centres that provide the intellectual bases for our research, consultancy and teaching activity: The Centre for Higher Education and Equity Research (CHEER) provides a platform for the growing field of research into Higher Education with a particular focus on the themes of identity, transition and assessment. Recent research has addressed race and equality issues in UK Higher Education, widening participation in Higher Education in low-income countries, gender and Higher Education, disability and Higher Education, doctoral pedagogy, transitions from vocational and further education, and postdoctoral transitions; the Centre for Teaching and Learning Research (CTLR) is engaged with research on all aspects of learning and teaching in a wide range of educational contexts - official and informal. It places particular emphasis on schooling, transitions, equity and inclusion; the Centre for International Education (CIE) has an international reputation for its work on educational development in the global south. Current research includes teacher education in sub-Saharan Africa, access to education in low-income countries, gender and development, education and conflict, sustainable financing of secondary education, aid and education development.
Students may be eligible for ESRC funding; various bursaries, including University-sponsored graduate assistantships may be available for full-time research study.
