Course summary

About the research degree

The Doctor of Education is a research degree for experienced educational professionals and is equivalent to the PhD. It differs from the PhD in providing formally assessed research training during the first year. The course recruits from a wide variety of educational contexts and offers a comprehensive programme of study and training in quantitative and qualitative research techniques. One of the strengths of the course is the sense of group cohesion, which is developed in year one.
