UCL Institute of Education

The Fulbright UCL Institute of Education Award covers any one-year master's degree programme offered by the institution.

Ranked number one for education worldwide in the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 QS World University Rankings, the UCL Institute of Education was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize in 2016.

In 2014, the Institute secured ‘outstanding’ grades from Ofsted on every criterion for its initial teacher training, across primary, secondary and further education programmes. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework assessment of university research, the IOE was top for ‘research power’ (GPA multiplied by the size of the entry) in education.

Founded in 1902, the Institute currently has more than 8,000 students and 800 staff. In December 2014 it became a single-faculty school of UCL, called the UCL Institute of Education (IOE).

Its research addresses society's most important challenges and its teaching inspires students by providing them with first-hand experience of leading-edge research and knowledge creation. They play an important global role, contributing to international academic and policy-related arenas and networks developing the fields of education and social science worldwide.
