The EdD Doctor of Education programme is designed to allow experienced professionals in the education sector to pursue doctoral studies equivalent to a PhD while working. If eligible, you have the opportunity to conduct high-quality research, explore your field of interest and consider the implications for your own professional practice. The qualification can support promotion to senior management roles within education or facilitate entry into Higher Education teaching. 

The part-time programme is taught over seven weekends a year, taking around 72 months to complete. Applicants should have completed a master’s degree and have considerable experience in their professional field.
