We run research programmes for MPhil & PhD, two professional doctorates (Doctor of Education/Doctor of Professional Studies & Doctor of Ministry - see entries under taught programme listings for details) and two master's in research (Education & Social Science; Language, Discourse & Communication). Our research infrastructure is organised around four research groups - Centre for Public Policy Research; Centre for Theology, Religion & Culture; Language & Literacy; Centre for Research in Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We have a range of research projects, funded by research councils (ESRC) and major charities (eg Wellcome, Leverhulme and Nuffield). If you are intending to study for a research degree, you should either identify the group or theme which seems best suited to your interest, or you should specify the specialist field associated with a particular member of academic staff.
