PhD in Education

The School of Education offers the opportunity for PhD and MPhil study, within areas of staff expertise.

Education research expertise

Areas of staff expertise for PhD supervision include:

  • body movement therapy
  • coaching, mentoring and teacher development
  • conceptions of learning and teaching
  • early years
  • leadership and policy
  • mental health and well-being
  • pedagogic research in higher education
  • psychotherapy
  • reflective practice
