Professional Doctorate in Education

In addition to the traditional research programmes of PhD, MLitt and MSc Research, we offer a Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD) for those who wish to engage with professionally located issues at an advanced level. Comparable in standing with the PhD, the EdD provides a programme of advanced study that is both professionally relevant and academically rigorous. The programme is offered in a distance e-learning mode designed to afford high levels of interaction in a supportive community.
