Research

We are proud of the research work undertaken in the School of Education, and the quality of this work is widely recognised.

Much of our research activity is organised through six different research centres. These pages also indicate areas of specialism for those interested in postgraduate and postdoctoral research.

As a research community we are committed to undertaking and sharing our research so that our work makes a difference. We are interested in understanding 'what works' in education, and how we can improve educational practices and policy. However, we locate these concerns within a broader set of questions about 'what matters'. What is the role of education in contributing to a more fulfilling, richer and socially just quality of life both for individuals and society?

Researchers in the School of Education draw on a wide range of research methods and traditions, and work with a diverse range of partners. Our partners range from teachers and community organisers in Nottingham through to national governments and international policy bodies.

The School of Education has a strong commitment to developing our discipline and offers a rich environment for those looking to undertake postgraduate research. If you are interested in postgraduate research opportunities please look at our dedicated page for PhD/EdD applicants.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss any issues further, please do not hesitate to contact us.
