Course summary

Doctorate in Education (EdD)

The Doctorate in Education (EdD) is an innovative programme of part-time study designed for professionals working in the field of education and related areas who want to extend and deepen their knowledge and understanding of contemporary educational issues. It is for professionals in education, including head teachers and trainers, but also other professionals working in an educational context in formal and non-formal settings including the public, voluntary and private sectors.

The EdD programme is located within the Centre for Research in Education and Educational Technology (CREET) and therefore not only draws on existing research expertise across the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies (WELS) and specifically from within the School of Education, Childhood, Youth and Sport (ECYS) and the School of Languages and Applied Linguistics (LAL), but it also draws on the wide educational research expertise across the University.

Assessment

You will complete two formative assessments in both year 1 and year 2 of the programme and will receive feedback from your main supervisor. In addition, there is a summative assessment at the end of year 1 and year 2. The year 2 summative assignment will be the end of the first stage of your studies. You must pass each summative assessment before you can progress to the next stage of your studies.
