Course content

Turn your career into a qualification; if you are a middle or senior manager our Professional Doctorate in Education offers a flexible alternative to a PhD. The course is designed so you can study part-time for a doctorate qualification while you work.

During the course you will analyse challenges in a key aspect of educational research and practice, research leading theories and evidence and apply your findings to move your professional area forward.

When you study for a Professional Doctorate at UWL you will join the international research and learning community of our collaborative research groups and Research Centres. We offer an integrated professional doctorate scheme which allows you to engage with professionals from different sectors and reflect on what is shared across professional boundaries and what is distinctive to your own occupational setting.
