Course summary

The School of Education is at the forefront of Educational research internationally and offers a dynamic and inclusive research culture.

We welcome enquiries from potential students to collaborate with our staff and professional partners to investigate the complexities of education and its underpinning values and beliefs.

We have a thriving community of about 50 research students and you could join our international community of students from every continent across the world.

Our research degrees are offered on a full or part time basis and delivered on campus or supervised at a distance.
For the session 2020/21 we can support all students to take up their PhD study at a distance and either remain as a distance student or complete their studies on campus in Aberdeen.

PhD study in the school is divided into four themes:

  • International (Studies of Social and Educational) Development
  • Teacher Education and Professional Development
  • Social and Educational Inclusion
  • Pedagogy and Digital Learning

Our graduates go on to careers in academia, some go on to work in a range of public service roles including government roles and policy making. Some graduates go on to develop careers in wider civic society using the knowledge and skills they have developed for social good.
