Welcome to the School of Education and Lifelong Learning research hub which provides information on our research strategy; current PhD projects; European funded research projects; visiting scholars and networks; the Vicky Phelan Chair in Equality and Access to Education; and Postgraduate Research Opportunities.
We offer practice-based research opportunities to education practitioners to ensure that the School’s research contributes new knowledge, insights and is impactful to our students’ own professional practice; to Education; and to society.
Our faculty supports, guides and encourages our students, all adult learners, to pursue research that is relevant to their professional practice and builds on their own experience.
We partner on European funded education research projects and with local, regional and national stakeholders in Education to identify relevant and timely research opportunities that will impact on policy and practice in Education. Join us on our research journey to reshape, inform and influence future Education policies and practice.
