Course content

The EdD programme, which carries the same academic status as a PhD, is designed for ambitious, mid-career education professionals in a range of settings, including schools, further education and higher education, whose work requires them to have a high level of research capability.

You can study at your own pace (full or part time) with our modular programme of intensive two-and-a-half day units taught in Bristol. Teaching is conducted by the distinguished academics at the University's School of Education, who are experts with international reputations for research in their field.

The programme attracts high-achieving participants interested in a wide range of aspects of teaching, learning, leadership, management, policy and evaluation. It has recently been updated and restructured to provide a coherent and structured learning experience that supports students in becoming independent researchers.
