Months of entry
This Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD) offers research-based professional development to experienced professionals whose practice is concerned with education. Applications from professionals within all fields of education are welcomed, including professionals based in early years, schools or higher education settings, and professional educators working in health, social care or other occupations in the private and public sectors.
The academic rigour of the EdD is comparable with that of a PhD, while being characterised by its focus on professional practice. Designed to meet the needs of full-time professionals, the EdD will enable you to extend your understanding of theory, practice and policy in the context of your profession. You will become an independent and reflective researcher, develop advanced research skills and gain a critical understanding of research methodologies, as you undertake research that leads to an original contribution to knowledge within your area of professional practice.
