Study for a PhD or MA in Educational Research
We offer innovative, specialist postgraduate programmes that are consistently rated as excellent by students, external examiners as well as internal and external reviewers.
Online and Distance learning
The Educational Research Department has considerable experience of supporting online and distance learners and we aim to make all our students feel that they are full members of the Department and part of the postgraduate community. Wherever possible we facilitate online participation at events and seminars organised by the Department.
All students have access to Moodle which is our Virtual Learning Environment. Many resources, for example, journal articles; required for postgraduate study, will be available online through the OneSearch facility offered by the Library. Additionally, the Library provides extra services for Distance Learners.
