CRECEA Doctoral Researchers

Doctoral Researchers (PhDs) working in Education at the University of Bath on subjects related to the Centre for Research in Education in China and East Asia.

We have a group of doctoral researchers engaged in postgraduate studies in East Asia, mostly involving China at the moment. They are at various stages in their research, but will all be happy to discuss their work with you should you wish to get in touch.

We also encourage those interested in doing a PhD with CRECEA to get in touch with one of our directors or members either directly or by first contacting one of our administrators, Shirui Chai or Tom Avery.

Please note CRECEA cannot currently fund postgraduate work.
