Course summary

Our Doctorate in Education (EdD) is intended for committed mid-career and senior professionals in all areas of education, training and related professional fields.

We provide you with a doctoral programme at the forefront of professional and academic practice, which includes taught coursework and a supervised thesis. Our programme is flexible but rigorous and is designed to support you through the challenges of doctoral study and research.

During the thesis phase, your focus will be on your dissertation. You will be supported in this by your experienced supervisory team. In the taught phase, you will have a personal tutor who will help you settle into university life and support you in addressing some of the requirements of the programme.

As an established centre for excellence in various aspects of education, the University of Greenwich commits to meeting the needs of researchers who want to study at the highest level whether they work in the education or other sectors.


You will be required to attend lectures one evening a fortnight. The lectures are generally focused on the development of your theoretical knowledge in research methodology and on the practical applications of these skills.


EdD candidates are assessed through assignments and a thesis, plus dissemination of work and a final doctoral viva. You will be made aware of the requirements from the beginning of your course. Each module has an assessment brief and a deadline for submission.

Careers and placements

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

Most students on this course are already well established in their careers. However, achieving the EdD enables professionals to follow other pathways for advancement in their place of work or to take on leadership responsibilities in other areas - particularly areas that involve research, development and policy development. It also offers the opportunity to embark on academic careers in some cases.

Graduates of the EdD course have moved on to become head teachers, college leaders, academics, sector leaders in the health sector, senior civil servants and leaders in various sectors including in engineering, travel and tourism and in business amongst others.
