Entry requirements

Prior study at Masters level is normally required. It is possible for students who have been following the MA in Education Studies programme to move up to the EdD programme after completing Part 1 of the MA without moving on to the MA dissertation. Transfer of credits into the EdD is evaluated case by case, as the EdD is essentially a research degree. Applicants are required to be interviewed in person or by other means.
