Course summary

The Doctorate in Education (EdD) is a part-time professional doctorate which offers research training and career development to a broad range of employed professionals in areas relating to education.

By providing a detailed understanding of research techniques and enabling students to relate theoretical concepts to their professional field, the programme aims to support students to critically reflect on their professional contexts as well as explore and understand the research and values that inform practice.

The programme has been running successfully for many years at the University of Reading and we welcome students from a range of backgrounds including early years; schools; further and higher education; the NHS; the armed forces; and social work.


Each module in Part A is assessed via means of assignments totalling 6,000 words. Students must successfully complete Part A of the programme with an average of 60% before progressing to Part B. Students who successfully pass Part A and do not wish to move on to Part B may be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma.

Part B is an independent, supervised research thesis on an approved topic of approximately 50,000 words which will be examined by viva voce. The thesis is required to make a distinct contribution to professional knowledge, be original, and demonstrate an ability to relate to the existing body of research within the field.
