Course content

This online distance learning programme offers a professionally relevant and academically rigorous opportunity for advanced study in education. The programme is designed for professionals at all levels in education, training and development, and in education-related fields.

  • The Doctorate is comparable to a PhD in terms of scale and rigour. It differs in that it provides a structured programme of advanced study that is relevant to your profession and focused on the inter-relationship of research, policy and practice.
  • There’s a focus on collaborative learning, drawing on your own experiences and those of your academic colleagues.
  • As you focus your studies into specialist areas, you will benefit from the activity of our five knowledge and research transfer groups: Creativity, culture and faith; Interdisciplinary science education, technologies and learning; Professional learning and leadership; Pedagogy, policy and practice; Social justice, place and lifelong education.
