School of Education

main content

The School of Education, now located in new state of the art accommodation in the heart of the city of Glasgow, is the largest provider of professional education courses for teachers and other childhood practitioners in Scotland and among the largest in Europe. We aim to provide challenging, research-informed programmes for those who aspire genuinely to make a difference in people’s lives through education.

Our research strengths are linked with our teaching and knowledge exchange activities and include the areas of Development of Professional Practice, Equity, Diversity and Social Justice, Learning, Teaching and Curriculum and Children and Childhood. We pride ourselves in the relationships we have developed through collaborative working with schools, local authorities, Government and the students we teach. We have research connections across the world including Europe, Australia and Canada and PGR students from Africa and Asia.

Research students from our ESRC-recognised doctoral research programme have the opportunity to work alongside a range of early career researchers in a thriving interdisciplinary Graduate School in HaSS. We deliver a comprehensive programme of postgraduate Masters level instructional courses. Our new undergraduate BA in Education for Initial Teacher Education will allow students to be part of an exciting and flexible BA in Humanities and Social Sciences Degree programme.

The School of Education has a number of specialist Centres of national and international importance, including the Centre for Lifelong Learning, SCILT, Scotland’s National Centre for Languages and host to the Confucius Institute, which is leading on the promotion of Chinese language and culture in Scottish schools as well as the Autism Network Scotland.

We are keen to increase our local, national and International connections and partnerships and look forward to welcoming you to our new home.
