Research in the department is organised into four main areas of Education and Social Justice, Language Learning, Science Education and Psychology in Education and we particularly welcome research proposals in these areas. The degrees of MPhil and PhD provide an opportunity to conduct a substantial in-depth study of a topic of interest to the applicant. PhD students are offered a variety of research training opportunities, in order to equip them with both research skills and transferable skills. These skills are increasingly important, both in academia and for employability, such as Research Methods training; Educational Research Group; Advanced Research Methods Skills (ARMS); Research Troubleshooting Workshop; Researcher development training programme.
