About

The programme is committed to developing our postgraduate students into competent educational researchers able to conduct rigorous research using a variety of methodological approaches. We welcome inquiries about possible research topics both theoretical and empirical. The Education programme is offered by the Goldsmiths, University of London.

Overview

The Department of Educational Studies is part of South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS), a consortium formed of 10 leading UK Universities, all of which are engaged in cutting-edge social science research and training. The Education programme is offered by the Goldsmiths, University of London.

It has about thirty research students from the UK, the EU and other countries. Many of our research students are also practising professionals carrying out research related to their work. Students study either full-time or part-time.

Students become members of the Department’s Research Centres and they are encouraged to contribute along with staff and other visiting scholars to their seminar series. Additional facilities for research students are provided by the Goldsmiths Graduate School.

Programme aims

To help you:

  • Identify appropriate issues of educational significance for your enquiry
  • Select appropriate methods and methodologies by which to investigate these
  • Appreciate the epistemological and technical assumptions that underpin this choice
  • Design and execute a well-founded enquiry
  • Analyse and interpret findings with accuracy, rigour and originality
  • Identify the practical and professional implications of educational enquiry

Programme Structure

  • We ensure that you are supported by highly qualified supervisors with whom you work to a mutually agreed timetable and maintain regular tutorial contact throughout your research. An induction and research training programme is provided and you are normally expected to follow this. 
  • Students have additional support from the Goldsmiths Graduate School, where there is a lively programme of interdisciplinary seminars, as well as core research training to support your studies. 
  • All MPhil and PhD students and academic staff are invited to research seminars run by the Department’s three Research Centres: the Centre for Language, Culture and Learning (CLCL), the Centre for the Arts and Learning and the Centre for Identities and Social Justice.
