I chose to undertake my PhD in History Education at King’s as I had gained a very positive experience of the MRes programme in Education & Social Science and knew that I could rely upon receiving a high quality of PhD training and supervision.

I have not been disappointed in this as the supervision that I have received in both qualitative and quantitative educational research methods has been expert, rigorous and dedicated. I have also been able to call upon the help and advice of other members of staff in and outside my department. I have gained formal lecturing experience on the master’s course in Education and the experience of making scholarly presentations to research groups in fields directly and indirectly related to my research. This has made the experience of studying for a PhD at King’s a collegial and fulfilling one, as well as preparing me for an academic career that lies ahead.

The School of Social Science & Public Policy has generously funded my research into History Education & Muslim Boys in partnership with the Muslim Council of Britain. This partnership has not only been invaluable financially but has given my social research and ideas a direct outlet and relevance to the non-academic world.
