For research students

The Graduate School of Education is recognised us as one of the top Education research schools in the country, rated 5th* in the UK for world leading and internationally excellent research in Education. We are an ESRC-recognised outlet for part-time, full-time, distance learning and CASE research training, and have ESRC quota for research studentships.

As a research student here you will benefit from one of Britain’s best Education libraries, a separate resources library, a print unit with full reprographic services and extensive IT facilities.

Doctoral students are provided with a newly refurbished, modern Research Support Unit containing computers and other equipment, plus a variety of quiet work areas including allocated offices and 'drop in' space. The 'drop in' space is open to all postgraduate students, while allocated offices are only available to those in the research phase of their studies.

We also have a postgraduate common room which offers our postgraduate taught and research students a place to socialise and relax in a peaceful environment.

As a research student you will be part of Graduate School of Education, and the College's Graduate Research School. You will find further information to support you on the Graduate Research School website.
