Course summary

Programme overview

The Doctor of Educational Psychology (DEdPsy) is a research degree accredited by the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council. The degree serves as the entry qualification for professional practice and employment in educational psychology. It has been designed to meet the professional training needs of educational psychologists and reflects a shift in orientation in professional training that is implicit in a research degree.

The programme's academic and research goals are:

to create an advanced level of knowledge in the areas of child development, educational psychology, special educational needs, assessment and intervention, childhood diversity, family dynamics and educational systems; assessment is by written assignments
to provide instruction in research methodology to doctoral level (you will be required to complete a 45,000-word dissertation).

Careers

The DEdPsych programme leads to a professional qualification in educational psychology, so graduates can register as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council and as a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.

Educational psychologists are employed across a wide range of fields, including local authorities, social enterprise organisations, private practice, schools and academies, and the health service.
