The School of Education is a vibrant and intellectually stimulating environment in which staff have developed national and international reputations in their areas of expertise and are committed to the advancement of knowledge and its application in all fields of education. 

The School of Education offers three undergraduate courses: BA Education, BSc Education and Psychology and BSc Education and Digital Learning. Education professionals make a difference to the lives of children and young people, inspiring them to learn and developing their knowledge and skills to prepare them for their future. These courses are carefully designed to provide relevant work experience opportunities, the foundation for future study or work within the field of education.

Postgraduate study is part of our core business, and the MA Education offers practising and aspiring educators the opportunity to learn, apply, and produce critical knowledge in the interdisciplinary field of Education, with the aim of enabling them to use this to inform and transform future educational practice, theory, policy, and institutions.

The PhD (Professional) Education is a doctoral research programme of equivalent standing to the traditional Doctor of Philosophy, with a focus on research and professional practice. The course is designed for current and future educators who wish to conduct original research relating to their professional context or area of educational practice, and aims to support the dissemination, development, and management of a range of professional practice and policy development.

The MA by Research/MPhil/PhD Educational Research and Development is a research qualification aimed at those who are, or aspire to be, senior academic or administrative leaders of primary, secondary, or tertiary educational institutions, or university lecturers and researchers.

By first enrolling on a teacher training programme with our School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) partners the Lincolnshire SCITT or the St George‚Äôs Academy Partnership, it is possible to study for a PGCE qualification leading to a PGCE (Primary) with QTS or PGCE (Secondary) with QTS.   Enquiries about this teacher training route should be directed through our SCITT partners and you can apply for teacher training here.
