Based in Milton Keynes, UK

The Centre for Research in Education and Educational Technology, at the Open University, has an international reputation for the quality of its research and its teaching. Part of our success is due to the importance we attach to our postgraduate research students. ?Providing research students with a supportive environment and excellent research facilities ensures a future supply of first class researchers. CREET offers you a unique opportunity to study the theory, application and practice of Education, Technology Enhanced Learning, and Languages and Literacies with guidance from world-class experts in the field. If you feel that the challenge of research in this exciting and interesting area is for you and you have the drive and intellectual curiosity to pursue postgraduate research, then we look forward to hearing from you!

CREET is offering a limited number of fully funded and partially funded full-time studentships for a 1 + 3 programme (MRes and PhD). Half-funded studentships are also available for applicants who have already secured an external sponsor and you should indicate this in your application when you apply. Applicants who are able to fully fund themselves are very welcome to apply to CREET.

You should have, or expect, a 2.1 or above in an undergraduate degree or a Masters degree in education, language studies, psychology, computer science or another appropriate discipline.
