Education at Brunel: looking to the future with pride in its history.


We strive to be the most innovative Education department in London. Based on the oldest teacher training colleges in the British Commonwealth – each with a radical history - we offer research-led undergraduate and postgraduate programmes for teachers, youth and community workers, other education professionals and those with an interest in the academic study of Education and schooling. Our research is funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the British Academy, the Higher Education Academy and many other organisations and charities. We are committed to working locally and globally and the impact of our research reflects that aspiration.
Whether you are looking to study with us, research with us or work with us, please get in touch.

Head of Subject in Education
