We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Department of Educational Studies encompasses a wide range of research interests, and is committed to promoting a research culture among staff and students. We are one of the largest departments at Goldsmiths, and are well established as a centre for innovative initial teacher education, professional development, and special programmes funded by the Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA).
Our current research activity is in these main areas: art in education; bilingualism in education; children and popular culture; comprehensive education; curriculum policy and practice; equity and social justice; gender studies; identities, cultures and the curriculum; racism and education; sexuality and education; spatial aspects of education; and visual cultures and education.
Our students come from a diversity of social and cultural backgrounds, some from South East London, others from all over the UK and increasingly from overseas. Many come to us after a break from full-time education.
Our teaching and research reflect our commitment to social justice and inclusion and the contribution education can make to their realization. If you share these values and have an interest in education in its broadest sense then Goldsmiths Educational Studies is the place for you.
Please note that all PGCEs except the flexible programme have two exit routes – Master's Level and Higher/Professional Level. The Master's Level award will be the Postgraduate Certificate in Education; the Higher/Professional Level award will be the Professional Graduate Certificate in Education. Both awards confer Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
