Course content

The DEdPsy is a flexible research degree designed to meet the needs of practising Educational Psychologists (EPs) with at least one year’s experience in the field. The course combines applied psychology with high quality real world research in a variety of vital and complex educational issues. It provides a framework in developing rich evidence based practice and self-reflection.

The programme takes a distinctive approach to a professional doctoral qualification through its focus on research rather than taught modules, research having been identified in the Currie Report (2002) as one of the Educational Psychologists’ core activities. Furthermore, the equal division of credits between two elements of the course, Research and Professional Practice, emphasises that this is a professional doctorate and maintains coherence in the balance between academic and professional elements in the MSc in Educational Psychology.
