This course will help you develop your own high standards of research that can be applied to a range of professional and managerial careers. You can study from anywhere at any time and share experiences with fellow students during the study weekends in Sheffield.
The Sheffield EdD is a vibrant and successful distance learning programme which attracts students from all over the world. The programme is based on a structure of study weekends, so you can study from anywhere at any time and also share experiences with fellow students at the weekend study schools in Sheffield.
The main aim of the programme is that students develop their own high standards of research that will be relevant to a range of professional and managerial careers.
The EdD is divided into two Parts; Part 1 is the taught element of the course and runs over two years while Part 2 is the research component. In Part 1 students undertake modules which focus on research training in preparation for Part 2. In Part 2 students undertake an independent study in an area of their choice, under the supervision of their own personal supervisor.
The weekend study schools are held in Sheffield and are a rewarding feature of the programme. You'll have the chance to take part in lectures, workshops, seminars and group and individual tutorials. You'll also benefit from networking opportunities with fellow students.
These are our confirmed dates, but dates may change due to factors beyond our control. If dates change we'll give students as much warning as possible.
A selection of modules are available each year - some examples are below. There may be changes before you start your course. From May of the year of entry, formal programme regulations will be available in our Programme Regulations Finder.
The EdD is divided into two parts:
Following induction, students undertake their own independent research and this is facilitated through collaborative, collegial relationships, including both cohort and individual supervision.
Students will be invited to become members of at least one research cluster or network in the School of Education and encouraged to take an active role in their related activities such as conferences, seminar series and readings groups, in order to develop expertise in their chosen field of study and raise or establish their own national and international research profiles.
Part-time (distance learning):
