Abstract

Educational research is a systematic, controlled, empirical and critical investigation of hypothetical propositions about the presumed relations among natural phenomenon. Education is mainly concerned with the processes which deal with deliberate change in the behaviour of people through the acquisition of knowledge, skills, attitudes, interests and appreciation. This paper focused on the concept of educational research and its benefits to tertiary education students. Research gives student the opportunity to pursue a study on a subject of interest, helps to solve existing problems and challenges so research that is expected to solve a specific issue that require urgency will receive a large audience. This is to say that educational research is important for students to undergo as a course and should not to be neglected. It was recommended that students should be given equal chances to carryout research in education so that they' can contribute their own little quota in making education and the society a better place and that educational research is one of the courses that should be highly embraced by students as it helps in solving existing problems and challenges. It was concluded that educational research remains an unavoidable course for students for national development. Educational research is one of the courses that should be highly embraced by students as it helps in solving existing problems and
challenges.
