Study with us

ICHRE offers world-class teaching in the history of education – broadly defined – through our contributions to undergraduate degrees, MA degrees and PhD supervision across UCL. All courses are taught by research-active specialists in social and educational history.

Education, Society and Culture BA

Members of ICHRE contribute in various ways to the interdisciplinary Education, Society and Culture BA at UCL. This distinctive interdisciplinary programme provides students with the critical tools necessary to examine education, society and culture. Students will join the world-leading IOE, UCL’s Faculty of Education and Society, and learn from academic disciplines including history, philosophy, sociology and psychology. The programme is flexible, allowing students to follow their interests as they gain subject-specific and transferable skills that will enable students to succeed in the modern workplace and impact societal issues.

MA Education

IOE has a long history of offering taught courses in the history of education at MA level. It is possible to take history options and work towards a history masters dissertation as part of the MA Education. Contact Tom Woodin (t.woodin@ucl.ac.uk) for more information.

Research Degrees

The International Centre for Historical Research in Education is based within the department of Education, Practice and Society at IOE, UCL’s Faculty of Education and Society. We host a wide ranging programme of PhD supervision. Staff have developed a national and international reputation for excellence in supervising doctoral students and are available to supervise in a range of areas.  Potential students are welcome to contact individual supervisors to discuss options regarding pursuing their research interests as a doctorate and you can see further information about the programme here. Possibilities of co-supervision with colleagues in other UCL departments also exist. Home or EU students are eligible to apply for AHRC funding via the London Arts and Humanities Partnership or ESRC funding via the UCL, Bloomsbury and East London Doctoral Training Partnership.
