Course content

This Professional Doctorate (EdD) is a partly taught and partly research-based Professional Doctorate which has proved to be both successful and convenient for senior professionals in education and related fields. We offer a wide range of taught modules in the areas of research methods, education policy, education management, TESOL and professional development.

On successful completion, students will have made an original and independent contribution to educational knowledge in the field determined by the topic of their research dissertation study. They will demonstrate a critical evaluation of the relevant literature, a high level of competence in appropriate research methods, and the ability to communicate the results and their implications.

We undertake a wide range of research that falls within two broad themes: pedagogy, learning and curriculum; and human rights, equality and social cohesion in education. Underpinning all of our research is a commitment to achieving a real impact in the lives of educators and learners.
