Research centres and networks

The School of Education is home to five research centres - each engaged in a programme of systematic research, capacity building and impact generation around their particular substantive and methodological concerns. The School is also home to several networks that aim to stimulate lively debate and contribute to new understandings.

In combination, centres and networks combine to create a dynamic research atmosphere. They also contribute to developing expertise that enables us to shape debates, policy and practice in ways that benefit teachers, learners, parents and policy makers both within the UK and globally.

Ranked among the top five for research excellence

The results of the REF 2014 confirm that we are one of the top ten leading UK centres for high quality and high impact research on education. We are ranked fifth in the UK by the Times Higher Education Research Intensity rankings.
