The School of Education is a vibrant global space with more than 150 international undergraduate, postgraduate and research students from 45 different countries.
In addition, our local staff and students have a diverse range of international research and teaching interests.
Growing our global engagements is a priority area for the School and Faculty of Education and Arts, and there are a number of great initiatives in place to support this.
Our academic staff have formed the Comparative and International Education Group University of Newcastle (CIEGUN), a program of research that brings together a critical mass of established comparative researchers exploring global educational policies and alternatives for contemporary times. The focus is developed through inter-related research spokes, across geographical regions, educational sectors, and time periods, with a consistent focus on policy critique, the exploration of socially just alternatives, and interventions that systematically incorporate subaltern voices.
