Our organisationThe Faculty of Education and Language Studies comprises four academic areas:
Our workThe Faculty provides curriculum for four programme areas:
The Faculty hosts a multidisciplinary research centre, the Centre for Research in Education and Educational Technologies (CREET), which is one of the leading education research units in the UK. CREET pursues and develops research within the themes of childhood and youth studies, education studies, language and literacies and technology enhanced learning.
Partnerships are very important to both FELS and CREET, given the close relationship between theory and practice in our subject specialisms and the vocational nature of much of our curriculum. See the Our Work section and the Collaborate with Us section for more details of how partnership with the Faculty might be able to help you achieve your aims.
