The Doctor of Education (EdD) is a professional doctoral degree designed to enhance education leadership and professional practice.
The Professional Doctorate award is distinct from the PhD award in the following respects:
- There is a considerable weighting given to a taught component which comprises an integral and key part of the programme, and the assessment of the taught component contributes directly towards the final award.
- The thesis produced by Professional Doctorate students will make an original contribution to knowledge within the relevant area or areas of professional practice.
The benefits of the EdD are both organisationaland personal. The evidenced-informed insights and new knowledge generated are likely to impact greatly: the participants undertaking the EdD broadening and deepening their professional outlook.
