IOE - Faculty of Education and Society


Graduate taught

As the world's leading centre for research and teaching in education, culture, psychology and social science, IOE offers a collaborative and insightful space in which to examine society, explore your passions, and challenge and re-examine ideas of knowledge, power, education and truth. 

Our most important collaborators are our students. New ideas, and new research, are given meaning through your real-life experiences. Our graduates go on to influence future generations for the better, from individual lives to societal change.

IOE was ranked first for education in the QS World University Rankings in 2024 for the eleventh year running. Our research addresses society’s most important challenges and our teaching inspires our students by providing them with first-hand experience of leading-edge research and knowledge creation. 

We undertake around a quarter of the funded education research carried out in UK universities, and in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, 94% of our research was judged to be of world class quality.
