Department of Education Studies

Overview

‌Education Studies is a dynamic and successful department of Liverpool Hope University with a diverse and growing number of staff, students and researchers. It has an international reputation for excellence in research and teaching. We are extremely proud that in the 2017 Complete University Guide, Education at Liverpool Hope University is 3rd in the UK for student satisfaction (out of 77 Universities that offer Education). In addition, in the 2015 National Student Survey, Education Studies at Liverpool Hope was ‘best in the North West’ for ‘overall satisfaction’, ‘assessment and feedback’ and ‘organisation and management’. In the most recent review of Research Excellence, 60% of research in Education at Liverpool Hope was graded as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.  

The study of Education at Liverpool Hope involves a detailed investigation of the four principal disciplines of education: history, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. The core of the department is a highly trained, innovative international team of academics from over seven different countries and Liverpool Hope is one of few universities in this subject area where 100% of teaching staff hold doctorates. The team are also involved in leading international subject organisations such as British Association for International and Comparative Education and Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain.

The undergraduate Education Major is a rigorous academic course with a broad professional orientation. It is designed to partner with a range of subjects on offer across the University. At postgraduate level, we offer an MA Education, MA International Education and Postgraduate Certificate in Philosophy of Education. The department hosts the Centre for Education Policy Analysis,   providing a 'hub' for staff and students to conduct research and exchange ideas. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Department!
