School of Educational Studies and Leadership


Everybody has a view of education, but students of education base their views on the best educational scholarship and research. Education draws on a range of disciplines and seeks to understand how people learn and the role of education in human societies.

Is Education for you?

Education asks questions such as:

  • How can we motivate students to learn and enjoy school?
  • How can we best promote child and adolescent well-being?
  • How are growing social inequalities affecting education, and what can be done about it?
  • What role can education play in creating social change?
  • What is the role of education in producing citizens who are "prepared to make a difference"?
  • How can you tell if an educational intervention works?

If these issues interest you, then Education could be the subject for you.
