Course summary


This programme is a unique opportunity for experienced professionals to gain a practice-focused higher degree. The EdD engages with education in its broadest sense across the age range from early years to adulthood. It is relevant across all educational settings and students come from a range of backgrounds beyond traditional education, such as the charity sector, prison and social work. Participants with an interest in equality, diversity, sustainability and inclusion (themes within the realm of social justice) will gain much from working with a diverse group of peers and tutors from a range of backgrounds. The close association between the University Research Centres, LSBU's Doctoral Academy and masters programmes provides opportunities to work with like-minded research-active peers within a lively and supportive learning community.


UK higher education increasingly demands doctorate level qualifications and a UK doctorate is usually preferred. Participants wishing to develop a career in research or in senior positions in education benefit from having a doctorate. The opportunity to write for publication along the way is built into the EdD programme. Publishing in refereed journals is particularly important for participants looking to excel in academia.
