Research and Knowledge Exchange

The Faculty is home to the Education and Social Research Institute (ESRI), one of the leading UK centres for applied educational research and evaluation. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), the system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions, rated 67% of our research as 'internationally excellent' or 'world leading,' and 100% of our research impact as being 'internationally excellent' or 'world leading'.

We are committed to knowledge exchange and encouraging collaboration between researchers, educators, business and society and have worked with worldwide organisations in China, Norway, Sweden, UAE and USA to share our expertise and provide bespoke training courses. These have been in the form of conferences, workshops and summer schools delivered both at Manchester Met and overseas.

Student Experience

International students are welcome to join us for short periods of study, on either an exchange or study abroad basis. Students can currently spent either the autumn term or the full academic year here. We also encourage students studying on full time courses within the Faculty to gain international experience in their field of study. This can be on a five month study exchange in year 2 of an undergraduate degree to partner universities in Europe, USA or Hong Kong, or on short term enrichment experiences.

Studying as an Exchange student at the Faculty of Education

You can study at the Faculty of Education during the Autumn Term (September to December) as part of an Erasmus or Worldwide Exchange. If you choose to study with us, you will be able to select courses from across our Undergraduate programmes. Our current course offer is under review.
