The Doctor of Education (EdD) is a doctoral research degree for educators working in a wide range of educationally-oriented settings who wish to extend their professional understanding and develop advanced skills for research, reflection and evaluation.

If you are an education professional working in, for example, an early year's setting, school, college, university, health and social care setting or a museum and heritage service, this doctoral level programme is an excellent opportunity for you. As a professional doctorate, the EdD is offered part-time to help you maintain some flexibility and balance between your work and study. Through engaging in critical self-reflection and a sequence of structured learning experiences culminating in a substantial piece of professionally-focused research, the programme will enable you to transform your practice and make a contribution to new professional knowledge.

The EdD is a programme of the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education (FHSCE) which has extensive relationships with multi-agency partners and a broad range of participatory and networking opportunities for experienced, early career and student researchers. Our academic staff have extensive experience of working with researching professionals at masters and doctoral level and leading national and international research projects. The EdD programme provides a strong foundation for rigorous, research-led pedagogy and praxis supported by experienced and research-active supervisors.
