Higher and Further Education

Welcome to the Higher and Further Education research cluster. We are researchers who work in a variety of ways to explore issues such as policy and governance, pedagogy, assessment and learning, and widening participation within the Higher and Further education sectors at local, national and global levels.

Study with us

Colleagues from the Higher and Further Education research cluster are involved in the provision of taught courses as well as research degrees.  We warmly welcome applications from students interested in aspects of higher education that fit with cluster expertise, including areas which intersect with the interests and activities of other research clusters within the School of Education and wider university community.
