with Crimson Education, and today we’re talking about the top education schools in the world. These are the schools that
prepare the best teachers, education policy makers,
and more, to go out there and change the world through education. So, let’s get right to it. First, disclaimer before I get started. These rankings are
based on the QS rankings which take into consideration such things as employer reputation, the h-index, citations per faculty member, and more. This by no means means that
this is the definitive ranking of best education schools in the world, but it’s a pretty good one. And, if you want to learn more
about the education school that’s best for you, if
you’re interested in going into teaching and education policy making, click the link below in the description for a link to a free academic consultation with one of our academic experts. Let’s get started. Number six on our list is the University of Hong
Kong, located in Hong Kong. The faculty of education at
the University of Hong Kong is very dedicated to work in
theory, pedagogy and practice, but also is really
dedicated to carrying out the university’s stated mission of acting as an educational nexus between China, Asia and
the rest of the world. Research at the University of
Hong Kong School of Education is organized via divisions and via six research
centers and two consortia. The University of Hong Kong also has a major education policy unit for those focused on
developing education policy, as well as a laboratory of
neuroscience for education, which is an interdisciplinary unit that cuts boundaries across
education, neuroscience, and finds how those two
disciplines can work together. Number five on our list is
the University of Cambridge, which offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in education. If you’re pursuing an education degree at the undergraduate level at
the University of Cambridge, you can enter three tracks, all of which are interdisciplinary. Those three tracks include:
One, the Education, and Psychology and Learning track, which focuses on education from
a psychological perspective; two, the Education, Policy and International Development track, which focuses a lot on the
history of education policy and how we can use education
to initiate social change; and, three, the Education, English, Drama and the Arts track, which connects the study
of English literature with a lot of key debates
in education policy making, such as the role of creativity
and the role of culture in developing curriculum for students. The University of Cambridge
also, as mentioned before, has a master’s program which
includes a full-time course, which is 10 months, as well
as a master’s of philosophy in education, which will be
more of a part-time course, two years for folks who are both teaching and learning at the same time. Number four keeps us in the UK
at the University of Oxford. At Oxford you can both
get a master’s degree and a doctoral degree in education. The master’s degree is a
one-year, full-time course which gives you a grounding in
educational research methods, as well as a more theoretical and methodological understanding
of the field of education as it exists today and how
research is conducted within it. In addition to that, you would
choose a specialist pathway, which allows you to choose
where in the field of education you want to go after you
get that initial basis. The master’s degrees at Oxford can both be full-time and part-time, and the doctoral program is
around three to four years. Number three on our list
is Stanford University, which is number three on our list both for its Graduate School of Education and for its undergraduate offerings. Stanford’s Graduate School of Education offers several different
master’s programs. Among them are the Stanford
Teachers Education Program, or STEP; the Learning, Design
and Technology Program; or the Policy, Organization
and Leadership Studies Program. As you can likely tell from the titles of these different programs, they lean more towards
teaching and pedagogy, and towards education policy making, whichever route you decide
that you want to take as a master’s or a doctorate in education. Stanford also allows undergraduates to take courses at the
Graduate School of Education. It’s the only graduate program at Stanford that allows students to
do this on such a regular and regimented basis
through their UP program. These offerings allow
undergraduates to minor in education to give them a core
understanding of the issues that face educators and
education policy makers, to prepare them for a
future postgraduate career in education, or for teaching
and education policy making. Number two on our list
is Harvard University’s Graduate School of
Education, founded in 1920. Since 1920, the Graduate
School of Education at Harvard has been at the forefront of leaps forward in education policy making,
and in our understandings of pedagogy and psychology
as it relates to education. Harvard’s location in
Cambridge, Massachusetts, puts it directly across the
Charles River from Boston, which was the birthplace
of public education in the United States and
also the home to hundreds of innovative schools that students at the Graduate School of Education are constantly working at and studying at. The Graduate of School of
Education at Harvard is also home to Gutman Library, one of the most famous education libraries in the world. Gutman’s collections focus
on education administration, on policy through elementary
and secondary education, on human psychology, on development, the history of education, and more. It’s one of the best resources,
literally, on the planet for education policy and history. Number one on our list is the UCL, or University College London
Institute of Education, or IOE. This one is huge. The UCL Institute of Education
has been ranked number one in education in 2014, 2015,
2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 by QS, and it was awarded the 2015 Queen’s
Anniversary Prize in the UK. That’s all to say that, basically, the Institute of Education at
UCL has been the number one education school and the
number one trailblazer in education policy
making for a long time. They’re the best of the best. There’s a number of reasons why
UCL’s Institute of Education has been the best in the world
for so many years running. One is possibly that it has
the largest education library in Europe, but another
is that its location in Bloomsbury, London, means that UCL is the biggest provider
of teacher education in the entire UK. If you’re a student of education at UCL, chances are you’re also
going to become a teacher in one of the many, many diverse
schools throughout London. Both students and researchers
regularly collaborate with schools throughout London, and they’ve created partnerships
with more than 600 schools in teacher training, in
professional development, and in collaborative
research opportunities and development projects
for London schools. The research of educators at UCL is also really, really
focused on creating change. They’re all about addressing
society’s most pressing issues and understanding that education is the best way to address those issues. This impact extends, not just to London and to London schools, but
to worldwide collaborations with other top education schools, particularly because UCL research is known for being the best in the world
in the field of education. This global spread is evident in UCL’s global engagement strategy,
which pushes places like the Institute of Education
within the UCL umbrella to work with more than 100
countries around the globe to work on their policy making. So this has been the top six
education schools in the world. If you want to learn more
