What we're researching

The Education Studies team are passionate about their subject and constantly engaged in a wide range of research and study - from the presentation of papers at national/international conferences, writing of books, blogs, and articles etc., through to practical involvement in charities, schools and wider care organisations. We choose areas of study that will make a difference to the lives of others and actively seek to share that knowledge and experience with our students.

Our highly rated research in Education Studies is mainly hosted at The International Centre for Public Pedagogy which conducts projects on education and social justice, disaster education, internet radio, careers advice and critical pedagogy. The centre has run funded projects from the Economic and Social Research Council and the European Union.
