The School of Education has a long history of both teacher education and adult education that stretches back over 100 years. We are located on the award-winning Jubilee Campus and enjoy strong partnerships with many schools and other organisations locally, nationally and internationally.
As well as training new teachers each year in the UK, we run an innovative PGCEi course in 15 countries. In close collaboration with the National College for Teaching and Leadership, we also provide a range of professional development programmes for school leaders, particularly in China.
Study with us because:
- We are ranked 4th in the UK and 22nd in the world for education by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017
- In the latest Research Excellence Framework we ranked 3rd in the UK with 84% of our research considered 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'
- All of our Research Excellence Framework submission relating to research impact and research environment was considered to be 'world-leading' - our school is the only education submission to achieve this
The school has a broad programme of undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, largely focused on professional learning. One distinctive strand of our postgraduate programme is professional counselling education which emphasises humanistic and person-centred approaches.
The school is also home to the Centre for English Language Education, which offers innovative pre-sessional and in-sessional teaching programmes.
