Course summary

We are 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.

We are particularly interested to hear from those who would like to work within areas such as:

  • art practice and learning
  • bilingualism in education
  • children’s literature and education
  • curriculum policy and practice
  • digital technologies and learning
  • equity and social justice
  • education policy
  • social research ethics as situated practice

The Department of Educational Studies has about thirty research students from the UK, the EU, and the rest of the world. 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.
