|Department||School of Education View department profile|
The EdD Education is ideal for students interested in a rigorous programme that combines the research elements of a PhD with significant taught components. This EdD has been designed to accommodate part-time study for full-time professionals. Seminars on a Friday afternoon and saturday allow students to engage with high level ideas while reflecting on their own working practices, contexts and research interests.
Students and graduates from the programme have backgrounds in a variety of professions including roles in traditional Education sectors, including FE and HE, as well as the Police, Fire Service and NHS. Students particularly benefit from the seminar group experience where they are enabled to encounter new ideas and to share responses and reflections in seminars – as opposed to the self-study format of a PhD. In addition, research training is provided.
Our graduates have secured employment in leading roles in numerous schools, FE colleges and HE institutions.
