Perhaps you have an interesting idea for a project that you would like to explore but have never done any education research before. Maybe you’re just not sure where to begin, especially if your work might involve a research methodology, such as qualitative studies, which may not be familiar to you. MERU can assist you in getting your project off the ground.

Or perhaps you need access to funding to get started. MERU has various grants available to members of the MERU community from Imperial College London, its partner institutions and NHS Trusts.
