Studying with the School of Education

The School of Education has a diverse post-graduate community of students and staff from around the world. You will join over 100 other students who are engaged in the advanced study of education together with committed and respected academics who draw from their own research and that of others in the practice of their teaching and supervision. The School of Education is within the College of Social Science and part of a larger academic community specialising in social and political sciences, business and law, psychology, sports, health and social care. A range of resources is therefore available to you, including an extensive library collection of books, ebooks and electronic journals in the social sciences and a number of discipline-specific seminar series which run throughout the year.

Our students range from recent graduates who wish to pursue an academic career in education, practising teachers who are looking to deepen their knowledge of a specific area of their profession, aspiring leaders in educational management, and retired educators who bring decades of experience to their chosen area of interest. Together with staff, all students are encouraged to share their knowledge and experience through a programme of seminars, talks and study.

Our programmes of study have been carefully designed around the other commitments of our students who are often working or based some distance from the city of Lincoln.  All of our students are welcome to attend the Study Schools and contribute to our annual student conference. PhD students negotiate a personal timetable of study and tutorials with their individual supervisors. We therefore welcome students who wish to study both full-time or part-time in Lincoln or based elsewhere.
