Course summary

The University of Edinburgh was ranked first in Scotland for research power in Education and Sport (THE Overall Ranking REF 2014) and we offer the largest concentration of researchers in education in a Scottish university, meaning you'll be supported by and collaborate with leaders in the field. Our research activities cover all aspects of education and learning - from pre-school to higher and lifelong learning - plus sport and related fields.

Moray House School of Education and Sport staff provide supervision on a wide range of topics within the fields of:

  • Sport
  • Physical education
  • Recreation management
  • Sociology of sport
  • Sports science
  • Counselling
  • Health sciences

Many opportunities also exist for interdisciplinary research.

Training and support

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree requires the submission of a thesis of not more than 100,000 words.

Students following this degree are normally supported in their research by two supervisors. The first of these will be a member of staff who has expertise in the general area of your proposed research topic and the second will be another expert in the field who may come from within the University or a field of practice.

Most students who are accepted begin a period of research leading to a PhD, however, the first year of this degree is probationary and progression to year two is dependent on satisfactory progress.
