We are proud to be one of the leading departments for education in the UK, ranked NUMBER ONE in the Complete University Guide 2018, 2nd in The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017 and 3rd in the Guardian University Guide 2017.
We also lead the way in high quality research, teaching and professional education both nationally and internationally. Our Initial Teacher Education provision was rated outstanding by OFSTED in 2013.
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.
We pride ourselves on student satisfaction rates, and the National Student Survey results reflect this, which includes a 100% satisfaction score for four 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.
