Our research community

The Centre for Research in Professional Learning is keen to hear from professional practitioners (e.g. teachers in primary, secondary, further or higher education; health care professionals; lawyers) who would like to undertake continuing professional development. 

For those wishing to undertake doctoral level study, there are opportunities to study for a Professional Doctorate or a PhD in Professional Learning. We would be delighted to talk to practitioners about possible topic areas prior to them submitting a formal application – please do contact the CRPL Co-Leads or any of the core members.

For academics involved in teaching at the University of Exeter, there is the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PCAP), and the credits from this award can be used directly towards the MA Education.
