Current PhD in Education

Why did you choose to study this course at the University of Warwick?
The Centre for Education Studies has leading academics in the Education field, who are actively engaged in creating new projects directly related to Education. Moreover, the students in the department are always informed about current issues and future directions in Education matters. In addition, it gives a great personal satisfaction as Warwick is one of the top universities in the UK and has been ranked as one of the top 100 universities in the world just in time for its 50th celebration this year!

What have been the highlights of the programme so far?
The programme has broadened my perspectives and has personally developed my skills as a competent researcher. I like the research supports (RSSP) that Warwick has prepared for the research students across disciplines. This combination of research skills workshops and academic seminars provide the ability to equip myself with necessary knowledge and skills of becoming an independent researcher. Another plus point is the community, which is very international, so you meet people from all over the world.

Would you recommend this course to a friend? Why?
I would highly recommend CES to anyone wishing to pursue a PhD in Education Studies as it provides the perfect research environment. All of the academics and admin staff are helpful and friendly. Moreover, the department has excellent learning, research and networking opportunities; it hosts seminars by distinguished speakers and there are various workshops and research conferences that students can participate in. Besides that, there is an annual Postgraduate Student Conference which is run by current postgraduate students. This offers a refreshing experience for those of you who would like to get involved in organising a prestigious event such as this!
