Students sit in class, learning attentively.

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…

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)
