The Moray House submission of 89 staff to the Education Panel of the most recent UK Government Research Assessment Exercise received the largest award for education research in Scotland and the second largest in the UK.

Our sports science provision is ranked 1st in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2017, we are the UK’s largest provider of initial teacher education in Physical Education and we have the best sports facilities and team performance of any Scottish university.

The School of Education also houses one of the largest groupings of research students in education and sports-related studies. We are committed to developing research-led teaching within a culture that values contributions to wider sustainable and socially responsible development in Scotland, the UK and globally and which promotes education, health, economic, environmental, social and cultural wellbeing.
