Course summary

Aimed at experienced professionals in all areas of education, with opportunities to learn from innovative local research projects.

This six-year part-time Professional Doctorate in Education combines a three-year taught programme with a three-year piece of independent research and a thesis of 50,000 words. You'll have the opportunity to conduct an original piece of empirical research based on your own practice in an educational field of your choice, which will make a new contribution to knowledge.

The course will offer you the opportunity to engage with the latest research in professionalism, early childhood studies, social justice and inequalities in education, education policy, leadership in education, pedagogies, and education philosophy. All of this will be underpinned by a rigorous study of research methods and theories in education.

This course is aimed at professionals working in education or education-related fields. You'll be encouraged to think, write, and research critically, innovatively, and rigorously. You'll learn how to analyse, critique and innovate in education practice, policy and research. You'll be encouraged to challenge established ideas and concepts and develop your professional and academic skills to the highest level.

Course overview

The EdD is a part-time course in two parts. The first, taught element, will take three years to complete, the second, independent research element will take two to three years.

The taught element contains six modules. Two modules will run per academic year, one per semester. This will also involve planning a piece of original research. You must pass the taught element of the course to move on to thesis stage.
