The Doctorate in Education (EdD) at the University of East London is a five-year part-time modular course specifically aimed at senior professionals working in all fields of education.
The course gives you the opportunity and the skills to conduct robust, innovative research that will improve the policy, practice and the quality of education. Your doctorate will enhance your professional capability through critical analysis and the use of research evidence.
You will be studying at one of the most diverse and multicultural universities in London, with the chance to meet and work with students and academics with different national and international professional backgrounds, each with their own experience and expertise that they bring to the course.
Doctoral courses at the University of East London give you the chance to draw on this dynamic research culture as well as the research expertise of our academic staff, at least two of whom will serve on your supervisory team.
The EdD consists of two stages. In Stage One, you will study four compulsory modules over two years. This is then followed by Stage Two, where you complete your research thesis.
