Entry requirements

Prior study at Masters level is normally required for entry on to the EdD.

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.

Course content

In this rapidly changing world, a postgraduate course can serve different needs and give you that extra edge that today's employers are looking for, or secure that much-needed promotion. Whatever your academic or professional goals, our long tradition of academic excellence will help you get there.

The Education EdD programme has been designed to offer flexibility in its provision and is available as a part-time or full-time course. Candidates for this degree may come from different backgrounds: for example, students who have finished or partly finished our MA/MEd programme, university lecturers, education policy makers, administrators, school teachers, advisers, inspectors, or anyone with an interest in education. We welcome applications from both overseas and home students.
