Profile Description


Nottingham Trent University has an outstanding reputation for our commitment to research that shapes lives and society.

School of Education

The Education branch of NTU's Graduate School, in the College of Arts and Science, is a vibrant research environment with researchers engaged in work of nationally and internally recognised quality. Research within the School has been funded by various bodies from Local Authorities, Government Departments and the European Union.

Subject areas
Research in the School is based around four Research Groups:

  • Developing practice and the curriculum;
  • Vocational education, lifelong learning and employability;
  • Technology enhanced learning and pedagogy;
  • Social change, equality, inclusivity and internationalisation.

Within the Developing practice and the curriculum research group two special interest groups have been formed, early years education and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics [STEM] education. In addition to the four research groups NTU has a ‘university-wide' pedagogy group which draws academics from all subject disciplines working on Higher Education focused pedagogy.
Researchers within college often work in collaboration with each other and a range of scholars from across the academic community in the UK, Europe and further a-field.

Students have the opportunity to take part in the Research Practice Course, a part-time module based programme in research practice methodology. This practical course provides the knowledge, skills and support for you as a postgraduate research student. The course also assists in the transition into research work and into the academic community, whilst nurturing a reflexive, critical attitude to both. Nottingham Trent University is the only University in the UK to offer a Postgraduate Diploma level research practice programme.

Internationally renowned research
The University values postgraduate research and those who undertake it, and recognises the value of a thriving postgraduate research community to the future of its research profile. Students in the Graduate School are working on research funded by Research Councils, the University and personal resources.

Postgraduate students are considered to be members of the wider academic community and are involved in seminars and workshops across the College of Arts and Science. This activity, alongside the expert supervision which guides their research, involves them in the international research community. Many members of staff have international reputations and there are a number of specialist centres, scholarly journals and a book series.

With such a diverse research culture, students are exposed to a range of research methods and benefit from the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work across the Graduate School.
