Master of Philosophy in Education

The MPhil gives you the opportunity to pursue a combined programme of taught modules and research, so you can gain valuable knowledge in education while investigating your own research interests.

In the early stages of the MPhil programme, you attend research methods modules to support your research activities. An initial priority is refining your research plan and establishing a feasible timescale for your project.

We award the degree of Master of Philosophy on the basis of a thesis where you present the rationale, methods and findings from your original study.

Research is central to the mission of the School of Education. Colleagues here undertake research in key areas of educational policy and practice, and we place particular emphasis on the relevance of our work to practitioners and policymakers.

Research students are at the centre of the School's work. We offer supervision in a wide range of research areas across key academic teams.

Please take a closer look at each team's pages below to get a sense of the breadth and depth of the research expertise. We hope you will find a colleague working in a research area close to the one you are interested in exploring further through your studies.
