Seminar series

Each term the Graduate School of Education arranges a series of Research Seminars where internationally renowned academics present their current or recently completed research and scholarly work.   The seminars are aimed primarily at those involved or interested in educational research.  They provide a forum for colleagues from various institutions to meet and discuss current issues. 

The research seminars are open to everyone: University staff, students, professionals and visitors from other educational establishments and partnership schools.   Attendance is free.  Seminars are held at the Graduate School of Education, College of Social Sciences and International Studies, University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter EX1 2LU.

We hope that as many of you as possible will attend the seminars and join in the informal discussions afterwards. There is no need to notify us in advance - just turn up at the seminar.

We also have a listing of past research seminars, where in some cases you can download recordings from the event (view the seminar details for the link).
