Summary

Research in education has to be able to make a difference.

PhD Education will allow you to conduct world-changing research that addresses key issues in social justice and enables evidence-informed educational change.

The Manchester Institute of Education (MIE) builds upon a long-standing reputation for excellence in educational research and teaching with a tradition stretching back to 1890, when education was first established as a focus for study within The University of Manchester. We are one of the largest graduate educational research communities in the UK, with a rich diversity of opportunity for our postgraduate research students.

The MIE approach to research is distinctive; through a focus on equity and practice, we make a significant contribution to the University's goal of social responsibility.

Our aim is to ensure that our educational and allied research is at the cutting-edge of theory and practice, and that it contributes to improvements in the overall wellbeing of students, their families and communities throughout the world.

Productive partnerships with policy-makers and practitioners have also been developed in order to interplay ideas, evidence and strategy. Manchester Institute of Education research themes include: - Critical Education Policy and Leadership (CEPaL);

  • Critical Pedagogies and Maths Education (CPME);

  • Disadvantage and Poverty (DP);

  • Education and Psychology (EP).

As a PhD student, you will join a vibrant and dynamic group of people with diverse backgrounds, interests and world views, and gain the opportunity to work with leading experts who have a broad range of experience and knowledge in the respective fields. There will also be many opportunities for you to become involved in ongoing research projects.
