Course content

This online distance learning programme offers a professionally relevant and academically rigorous opportunity for advanced study in education. The programme is designed for professionals at all levels in education, training and development, and in education-related fields.

Why this programme

  • The Doctorate is comparable to a PhD in terms of scale and rigour. It differs in that it provides a structured programme of advanced study in the first three years that is relevant to your profession as an educator and focused on the inter-relationship of research, policy and practice.
  • There’s a focus on collaborative learning, drawing on your own experiences and those of your academic colleagues.

Programme structure

Years 1, 2 and 3

You will take six core courses (one per semester), each requiring participation in a study weekend in Glasgow. 

  • Critical reflection in professional learning and practice
  • Education policy
  • Educational futures
  • Ethics and education OR Lifelong learning
  • Open studies one: Advancing research methods
  • Open studies two: Applying research methods

Years 4 and 5

Work towards the submission of a dissertation of 50,000 to 60,000 words, supported by an appropriate supervisory team.

Progressing at a normal pace, successful candidates can complete the Doctorate in five years. However, we realise that circumstances occasionally mean participants need to take a break from studies and the programme allows candidates to suspend their studies for a limited time period.

EdD programme dates 2018-19
