Dr Antonina Tereshchenko
Lecturer in Education


Prior to joining the MA Education team at Brunel in September 2021, I was a Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer at the UCL Institute of Education. I worked there on the teacher retention projects at the Centre for Teachers and Teaching Research, as well as Education Endowment Foundation funded studies investigating the effects of attainment grouping and mixed attainment teaching on students in secondary schools. 

I have completed three postdoctoral projects on migrant students' identities and educational experiences at King's College London (with funding from the Newton International Fellowship and the British Academy Visiting Scholar Scheme) and at the University of Porto (with funding from the Portuguese Foundation of Science and Technology). 

Prior to starting my PhD at the University of Cambridge, I worked at the Open Society Soros Foundation in Ukraine on the national reform to ensure equal and transparent access to higher education.
