Centre for Higher Education Research and Evaluation

Welcome to the Centre for Higher Education Research and Evaluation

We are a team of dynamic researchers focused on research addressing the issues currently facing Higher Education and its evaluation.

As one of the oldest centres in the world focused on Higher Education research, we are committed to contributing and challenging debates about higher education participation, access and participation, student outcomes and engagement and the indicators of how quality in higher education activities are developed and implemented.

We are closely linked with the Department of Educational Research’s Centre for Social Justice and Wellbeing in Education. We also have a close focus on learning and teaching in higher education and the implications for social justice and mobility.

We maintain central involvement with the ESRC/HEFCE Centre for Global Higher Education (CGHE), which is a multi-site centre conducting research into the engagement and impact of higher education.

Please take some time to browse out webpage to learn more about current projects, academic staff and our flagship PhD programmes; The PhD in Educational Research - Higher Education (residential based), and the  PhD in Higher Education: Research, Evaluation and Enhancement (entirely online). Our staff are also open to taking on Traditional route PhD projects either part- or full-time.
