The School of Education offers two routes for those wanting to pursue doctoral level study in education, the Education PhD and the Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD).
Both doctoral routes aim to enable students to develop advanced research skills and to generate new knowledge:
- for the Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD), a structured taught component is integral to the first stages of study and the emphasis is on the generation and application of advanced knowledge and skills pertinent to the issues within professional contexts.
- the Education PhD enables students to develop advanced research skills and build new knowledge with an emphasis on providing a pathway for those interested in a career in education research.
The EdD is suitable for people working in a professional environment who want to research issues in their own professional contexts and would benefit from a structured taught component to develop the necessary research knowledge, skills and understanding at doctoral level.
This is a supportive and stimulating course that offers a taught cohort experience prior to the individual research and thesis stage. With the support of experienced and expert tutors and supervisors, students build expertise, momentum and confidence throughout the course and to the completion of their doctorate.
