Doctor of Education EdD University of Bolton



Course info


This course offers you the benefits of a part-taught degree along with the opportunity to independently research a specific area of interest in depth. The Doctor of Education course was the first of its kind to be introduced at the University and is extremely popular. The programme differs from the traditional PhD in that it is in two parts. Stage one, the taught element, covers the development and submission of your research proposal. Stage two is a programme of directed and independent study leading to the production and defence of your own critical commentary. Our welcoming team of experienced, professionally and academically qualified staff will help you to understand how you can align your research topic of interest to other current research in applicable fields, and apply it to your own professional practice and context. The EdD is invaluable for demonstrating your ability to implement a project and also opens up opportunities for higher education lecturing and/or research posts.

Course Highlights: The EdD is a high-level, nationally-recognised qualification that has strong higher education kudos and compares exactly to a PhD; Professionals who hold a University of Bolton EdD take back to their organisation a greater knowledge and a higher understanding of today's diverse educational world, gained through a programme that is research driven; We’ll work with you to help mould your EdD so that it complements your employment and interests within the research framework. Key Features: Our EdD provides an opportunity to delve deeply into policy and practice, and examine a specific area of interest in detail via a thesis. You’ll be encouraged to develop your research, analytical, conceptual and critical thinking skills to a very high level. We’ll support you to develop a thorough understanding of research methods so you can make informed research decisions, and become skilled in shaping learning materials towards your own specialism. This makes the course relevant to specialists in every sector of education, from early years through to higher education.
