This programme for education professionals will give you a critical understanding of key issues, principles and methods in education research.
You’ll learn to design, conduct, analyse and interpret education research, informed by an understanding of the philosophical and theoretical issues at work. You’ll study research design, data collection and analysis while learning to interpret results.
Crucially, you’ll consider how to choose and integrate different methodologies, bringing together qualitative and quantitative methods to answer the complex questions you’ll face throughout your professional career. You’ll use software for advanced statistical modelling, consider issues such as ethics and develop your own research project – and you’ll also choose from optional modules available across the School of Education.
This programme provides training in research methodologies that meets the requirements of the ESRC’s 1+3 arrangement for research studentships.
