    Why choose this course?

    The aim of the Doctor of Education programme is to develop new knowledge and original thinking, as well as advanced understanding, skills and professional values in educational practitioners. Our Doctorate in Education is a high-quality form of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training that enhances the professional practice and expertise of all participants.

    Graduates of the Doctorate in Education are able to take a leading role in developing excellence and leadership in learning, teaching and/or student development in educational establishments. Their CPD training prepares them to engage in research/educational enquiry, and critical reflection and will also undertake critical analysis of literature, theory and practice in both education and teaching and learning.

    Professional Doctorates combine the robustness of a PhD with application to a professional area of practice. Research projects in professional doctorates are typically ‘applied’ and theoretically focused within a shorter format.
