dr Colin Swatridge




My first degree was in Theology and Philosophy at the University of Nottingham, UK. I studied at the master’s level at the universities of Bradford (in aspects of library science) and Manchester (the organization and planning of education); and at the doctoral level, at Nottingham, once again. My research project had to do with whether or not students are independent learners by the time they enter university.  

I have taught at all levels in the UK, but, following two years teaching in Papua New Guinea, I taught 16-18 years olds (English, Philosophy, Psychology), and tutored postgraduate students at the Open University, in Education Planning. I am a generalist by inclination.

Since 1998, I have been a visiting lecturer at the University of Miskolc, Hungary, and at a number of other Hungarian universities (including PázmányPéter Catholic University, and Karoly Gaspar University, both in Budapest), as well, more recently, at PetruMaior University in TârguMureş, Romania, and at Krosno State College, where I teach a course, each October, on The Art of Argument. 

Most of my books have been on aspects of education, though a book about Hungary and the Hungarians (A Country Full of Aliens) is still in print; and I plan one about the relations between Romanians and Hungarians in Transylvania. This is my current focus of research.
