We have a vibrant research community addressing a range of important challenges facing education systems, nationally and internationally. In REF2021, our impact and research environment were rated as internationally excellent or of world leading quality. We are also consistently delivering an excellent undergraduate learning experience, with the Guardian University Guide positioning us in the top 10 for a decade.

We offer a range of degrees and programmes from undergraduate, through PGCE and master's to PhD, as well as professional development for teachers. Our work includes collaboration with several organisations to advance policy and practice in education, teaching and learning globally. We respond to issues including how people will work, social equality, and developing skills in science, technology, engineering and maths.
