Oxford has been making a major contribution to the field of education for over 100 years and today this Department has a world class reputation for research, for teacher education and for its Masters and doctoral programmes. Much has changed at this Department over the years, particularly recently, with a range of excellent new and refurbished buildings and with expanded staff numbers. What has not changed is our commitment to excellence and to relevance in all that we do. Our aim is to provide an intellectually rich but supportive environment in which to study, to research and to teach and, through our work, to contribute to the improvement of all phases of public education, both in the UK and internationally. Access is within office hours by appointment only, by contacting Erica Oakes on 01865 274178.
