Study With Us


At CRAE, we offer a range of different ways that you can study with us.

If you are a prospective MA student…

You may be interested in our MA in Special and Inclusive Education (Autism). Led by the CRAE team, students will be introduced to cutting-edge theory and research, and consider how it links to policy and practice. This MA will appeal to students looking to develop their professional practice and/or progress to doctoral study.

To find out more about the MA Special and Inclusive Education (Autism), visit our dedicated webpage on the UCL IOE website, and/or contact the route leader and admissions tutor, CRAE’s Laura Crane.

If you are a prospective doctoral student…

IMPORTANT: Our standard application process for doctoral students is outlined below. However, Anna Remington has returned from maternity leave and Laura Crane is not potentially not able to accept applications from prospective doctoral students for the 2023-24 academic year.

Two members of CRAE staff supervise doctoral students: Anna Remington and Laura Crane.

Doctoral programmes at UCL Institute of Education begin in September of each year. It can take several months to prepare an application for a doctoral degree, so we would expect prospective students to contact us about a year in advance of when they intend to begin their studies (especially if funding needs to be sought).

If you are interested in completing a doctoral degree (e.g., PhD, EdD) with Anna and/or Laura, please email them directly, with a copy of your CV and the following information:

  • The degree you are interested in applying for (e.g., PhD, EdD)
  • The research area you are interested in pursuing and, ideally, a short proposal of the work you would like to complete (usually linked to Anna/Laura’s research interests/expertise)
  • A copy of your CV
  • Details of when you would like to start your studies
  • Whether you intend to apply for funding (and, if so, which funding schemes you are interested in applying for and what the deadlines are)
