Course summary

The Doctor of Education is a taught doctorate. It provides thorough grounding in the theory and practice of educational research. The course supports you in doctoral research related to your professional context or interests. We encourage critical reflection on experiences and expertise and an evidence-based approach to practice, innovation and change.

The Doctor of Education (EdD) is a professional doctorate. It is recognised for bringing together theory, research and practice through the close alignment of research with professional knowledge.

In education, professional doctorates are valuable in supporting, and indeed developing, evidence-based practice, to the benefit of the student and the wider education world.

You will benefit from a structured introduction to researching education as well as a flexible approach to learning. You can tailor your study to your own interests and emerging needs in the taught stage. You also develop research skills and approaches that you will need to succeed at the research stage.

It is appropriate for experienced professionals who wish to undertake part-time doctoral study while working full time within education. It is also suitable for full-time students with professional backgrounds as teachers or leaders who would like to develop research linked to their practices and knowledge.

We attract a diversity of both international and home students, based in a range of educational contexts, including, but not limited to, school, further education and higher education settings. Leaders, directors and teachers are able to learn from each other's experiences to develop their own understanding situated within the wider education context.

The course draws on the expertise developed in the Research Centre for Learning and Teaching (CfLaT), which is based in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences (ECLS). Course tutors are active researchers and all teach and supervise across a range of courses. This provides them with a wide knowledge base relating to the challenges of research in educational contexts.
