Course content

The Doctorate in Education is a unique opportunity for experienced professionals to gain a practice-focused higher degree. The EdD engages with education in its broadest sense across the age range from early years to adulthood. It is relevant across all educational settings.

Participants with an interest inequality, diversity, sustainability and inclusion (themes within the realm of social justice) will gain much from working with a diverse group of peers and tutors from a range of backgrounds. Everyone associated with the EdD shares a commitment to the notion of social justice, which underpins our work in education research at LSBU. The close association between the University Research Centres, LSBU's Doctoral Academy and the MA provides opportunities to work with like-minded research-active peers within a lively and supportive learning community.

Opportunities for accreditation of prior learning are available to participants with an appropriate background and this should be discussed with the Admissions Tutor who will also explain the APEL processes on request.
