About the School
We are very proud to be one of the leading departments for education in the UK, as we regularly feature in the top five in national university league tables such as 3rd in the Guardian University Guide 2019 as well as 3rd in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019, and 6th in the Complete University Guide 2019. We also rate highly in the world rankings, 51st in the Times Higher Education 2019.
In the Research Excellence Framework 2014 we were ranked 5th in the field of education nationally and joint 1st in the UK for world-leading research impact. Together with our 2013 OFSTED outstanding rated Initial Teacher Education provision we are a major contributor in the field of education.
We pride ourselves on student satisfaction rates, and the National Student Survey results reflect this, which has included a 100% satisfaction score for several years running for our BA Education Studies degree.
We have a vibrant research culture in the School of Education, and our staff and postgraduate research students are engaged in research within a wide range of educational fields. For further information please refer to our current research webpages and staff profiles.
