Delivering research with impact

We have a proven track record for delivering research with impact, demonstrated by a number of prestigious research grants and fellowships, including one of the largest philanthropic grants awarded to education in Australia. The School of Education has won 60% of the Faculty of Education and Arts' (normalised) research income from 2014-2019 and is home to 20% of the Level D and E staff.

The School is home to two Priority Research Centres that are changing lives across Australia and the world through interventions positively impacting teaching quality, as well as health and physical activity.

Other areas of research strength include education policy, curriculum and pedagogy, educational leadership, special and inclusive education, and research training and innovation, among others.

The School of Education is currently supervising more than 180 Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates from 20 countries.

We continue to actively collaborate with fellow researchers, industry partners, international colleagues and other faculties within the University to drive change and inspire new ways of thinking.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
