About the IOE

Here we tell you our values, aims and history. And we say how we are run and who we work with.

Bloomsbury, London's academic district, is our location. Garden squares and historic buildings surround our campus.

Leading centre in education and social research

A former graduate college of the University of London, the IOE's turnover was more than £74m in 2014. Our research record, size and partnerships place us among the world's premier schools of education. With academics and alumni active across every continent, our reach is truly global.

Inspiring tradition

Founded in 1902, as a teacher training college in London, the IOE is now a world-class research and teaching institution.  Our distinguished history and current mission are rooted in a commitment to social justice. We know that education transforms lives – and so do our supporters.
