UCL Institute of Education

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

Ranked number one for education worldwide for the seventh year running in the QS World University Rankings by Subject, the UCL Institute of Education was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize in 2014-2016.

In the last Ofsted inspection, the Institute secured ‘outstanding’ grades 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 faculty of University College London and since then it is known as 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.
