Postgraduate Research

CIER has a large and diverse postgraduate researcher community, supported by a group of experienced doctoral supervisors. We also have a number of postdoctoral researchers as centre members and are keen to grow this group. 

Research areas

We would particularly welcome applications for doctoral and postdoctoral research in the following areas: 

  • Critical perspectives on the internationalisation of education: schools, colleges and universities 
  • Vocational education and training for human development and social justice 
  • Higher education and capabilities: the role of curriculum and pedagogy 
  • Political, sociological and historical perspectives on adult and lifelong education in the UK and internationally 
  • The role of international organisations (for example, EU, OECD, UNESCO) in educational policy processes

For specific queries, please contact Dr Jane Evison.
