Our Research

The Department has a world-class reputation for excellence in research. The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) placed us in the top 20 of 82 departments of Education in the country, with 80% of our research activity judged to be of international standing, and 45% graded as internationally excellent and world leading.

We have three areas of excellence: Higher Education Research and Evaluation; Social Justice and Wellbeing; Technology Enhanced Learning. Work in each of these areas is facilitated by, and organised through, a centre:

The centres act as focal points to exchange, support and develop research but also enhance cross-departmental synergies in methodological approaches. Each Centre also has a programme of seminars and events.

Within the Centre for Social Justice and Wellbeing in Education we also have a group that specialises in Researching Equity, Access and Participation (REAP).

We have collected some short research impact stories about how our research work has been applied by different users, and to demonstrate its impact in many different fields.
