The Faculty of Education is recognised as providing one of the highest quality graduate programmes in the UK and is home to a thriving community of students following courses of advanced study and research at Master's and Doctoral levels.
Our postgraduate courses, which combine theory and research, and for many students are integrated with their professional practice are aimed at anyone who wishes to follow a professional interest in education. In particular, but not exclusively, we aim to attract those who aspire to careers in some form of educational research, educational leadership and/or lecturing or teacher education.
Graduate work in Cambridge is intense and intellectually demanding. Therefore we have high academic expectations of all our students. Importantly, much of the work our students undertake is aimed directly at improving educational practice, sometimes in students' own institutions. Research is undertaken in many national contexts around the world, as many of our overseas research students do projects they hope will be able to improve education in their own countries.
