Course summary

Overview

The Doctorate of Education (EdD) is the premier academic qualification for experienced professionals working in the education sector. It is aimed at those who intend to extend their professional development and understanding through research and reflection on practice. The EdD is ideally suited to those who benefit from studying in a structured, collegiate environment with the first two years comprising of taught modules. These modules enable the development of research skills and the intellectual rigour demanded of professionals at doctoral level. They also provide the foundation for the subsequent period of study, the thesis stage, during which a thesis is written focused on an area of professional interest.

A supportive cohort is a key feature of the EdD. BGU offers a single entry system, ensuring that students move through the taught modules together, enabling the development of a strong community. This community will facilitate peer review and reflection in a safe but challenging and stimulating intellectual environment. The cohort experience is further enriched by working closely with a small team of research active academics who will guide and support students throughout all aspects of the programme.

About this course

The EdD (Doctorate of Education) is aimed at experienced professionals working in the education sector. It is designed for those who intend to extend their professional development and understanding through research and reflection on practice. It is a part-time programme, typically taking 5-6 years to complete. The EdD is delivered entirely at BGU with the degree itself awarded by the University of Leicester.

The EdD comprises two stages. The first consists of five taught modules which are taken over the first two years of the programme. Sessions are delivered at weekends with tutorial and peer support provided in between, enabling you to combine your study with work commitments. The modules incorporate a variety of teaching and learning strategies covering a range of core research skills contextualised in professional issues. Sessions enable the systematic development of the high level of skills and knowledge required at doctoral level. Upon successful completion of the taught phase, you progress to the thesis stage. Here, you produce a thesis which is intended to provide an original contribution to professional knowledge and understanding in a focused area of enquiry.

Careers & Further Study

In an increasingly competitive professional environment, possession of an EdD and the title of ‘Doctor’ will distinguish you from the majority of colleagues. You will have critically evaluated your own professional practice and its relationship with theory, designed and conducted your own research, and gained increased professional confidence, all of which can enhance your opportunities for career progression.
