Dr Lily Yu

Interim Head of School of Education and English

Welcome from the Head

Greetings and welcome to the School of Education and English. The School of Education and English was created in September 2019 when the School of Education and the School of English merged. The school houses a range of departments and programmes providing a vibrant environment for teaching and research that are multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary. We offer a spectrum of undergraduate programmes, post-graduate taught programmes and post-graduate research programmes, which provide opportunities for academic and experiential learning that enhance your personal and professional growth.

Our research and education interests are diverse but our strong commitment to providing opportunities and diversity enables creative thinking across contexts. In all we do, we value:

  • Inclusivity- We are a community where everyone can contribute and be appreciated for who they are.
  • Ambition- We set the highest standards for our work and ourselves and support each other to achieve them.
  • Openness- We adopt a straightforward and a transparent way of communicating with each other and with the world, championing the free exchange of ideas.
  • Fairness- Our decisions and actions are consistent, impartial and ethical.
  • Respect- We have regard for each other’s rights and feelings, and demonstrate this in our behaviours, treating each other with kindness.

I invite you, whether you wish to be an undergraduate student, post-graduate student or a faculty member to join us to make an impact on the society or community you are in through teaching, research or practice.
