Research and Knowledge Exchange in Education

There is strength and diversity in the programme of research in Education and Childhood at UWE Bristol. A broad range of substantive areas of enquiry is sponsored by a wide range of funding bodies. The Department hosts a research group, the Bristol Inter-disciplinary Group for Education Research (BRIDGE).

Our vision

Our aim is to address educational issues from early childhood throughout the life course.
