Course content

Our doctorate delivers the advantages of working within a community of fellow researchers, engaging seminars, presentations and publication whilst also becoming involved in a substantial individual research thesis of your own.

The sense of community, collaboration in the development of ideas and the opportunity to explore aspects of research, policy and professional practice, is at the core of this course. It builds upon the knowledge and skills that you, as a professional, bring and assumes that your professionalism is an integral part of the doctoral journey – ensuring that journey is unique to you.

Study at doctoral level embraces all the critical and analytical skills present in master's level work but also includes a stronger element of distinctiveness and originality. Doctoral work should make a contribution to the field of knowledge within which you are researching, and should be of potentially publishable standard.

The doctorate in the Faculty of Education is a part-time programme that delivers the advantages of working within a community of fellow researchers, engaging seminars, presentations and publication whilst at the same time becoming involved in a substantial individual research thesis of your own. The sense of community, of collaboration in the development of ideas and the opportunity to explore in depth aspects of research, policy and professional practice, is at the core of this course.
