Program description

Higher Education PhD

Our PhD in Higher Education will produce the next generation of researchers, ready to address the complex problems in higher education and help shape higher education policy and practice at local, national and international levels. 

The Department of Higher Education has a growing reputation in the field of academic development and practice. We are one of the largest departments in the UK dedicated to research solely in higher education, and since 2013 we have attracted research grants from a variety of funders including Leverhulme, British Academy, HEFCE, SRHE and SEDA.

At Surrey, you will benefit from our vibrant research culture and specialist expertise in the areas of academic identity and development (including academic mobility and migrants), assessment and feedback, and learning and teaching in context (including the use of concept mapping and pedagogic frailty).

You’ll be supervised by leading academics who are at the forefront of their fields and have research strengths in diverse disciplinary subject areas, which will provide you with exposure to a range of different higher education areas.
