    Organisation profile

    The School of Education at Queen’s provides a rich and vibrant context for educational research. It is one of the leading centres for educational research in the UK and Ireland with over half of its research outputs being independently rated as either ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world-leading’.

    Research in the School of Education is organised within two broad themes.  Within these two themes, the School is home to four internationally-recognised research centres:

    The wider influence of research at the School of Education is also evident in the extensive involvement of staff and students in key national and international research networks, the continuing ability of the School to attract major international conferences and the fact that it is also editorial home to three major international journals: British Educational Research Journal; Education, Citizenship and Social Justice; and Effective Education.

    Our newly established Doctoral Research Centre has a lively community of over 160 full-time and part-time PhD and  EdD research students. The Centre coordinates training and support for our research students and organises a series of research seminars throughout the year. The research student body is very active and organises its own regular postgraduate conferences. In addition, research students are encouraged to play a full and active role in relation to the wide range of research activities undertaken within the School.

    The School of Education is the home of the University-wide, interdisciplinary initiative Improving Children’s Lives, reflecting the range and breadth of our own expertise in research with children.

    We would like to invite you to find out more about research at the School of Education by exploring the links to the specific research centres. If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact us
