About the School of Education

The original Department of Education was founded in 1896 and became the School of Education in 1947. It is one of the largest research-led schools of education in the UK employing over 100 academic staff who teach more than 2,500 students. It is also home to a number of departments and research centres.

With a population of more than 28,000 students including 4,000 international students from over 150 countries, Birmingham is one of the largest international student communities in the UK. We support International Students by familiarising them with the UK educational system and helping them to develop their academic English.

Education, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in the School of Education  

In the School of Education, we are committed to creating a caring, accessible, and inclusive environment in which everyone feels they belong and may thrive. We welcome, value and embrace diversity in our staff and student body, such as differences in nationality, cultural backgrounds, race, ethnicity, disability, age, class, religion or belief, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

We aim to embed this commitment to equality, diversity and belonging in our teaching and learning practices, our tutorials, our extensive module choices, our curriculum, student representatives and groups, welfare services, research, and the events and seminars we organise. The School of Education does not tolerate any form of bullying, harassment, or discrimination.
