About Doctorate in Education at University of Greenwich

The Doctorate in Education is intended for committed mid-career and senior professionals in all areas of education, training and related professional fields.

Currently the EdD comprises over 50 participants drawn from a variety of organisations, including schools, colleges, universities, local authority advisory services, health and care services and other public and private sector organisations concerned with education and training. This mix of disciplines and perspectives provides a rich and collegiate learning experience.

Students are encouraged to extend their academic experience through writing for publication, attending and presenting at conferences during the programme and through the study of advanced research methods in the social sciences.

Both students and the external examiner have commended the quality of the programme, student support, thesis supervision and the high completion rates.

The attendance requirement is mainly in the first two part-time study years of the 'taught' programme. After the first two years, students have a progression interview, which confirms progression to the 'thesis' stage of research, which lasts for 3-4 years part-time. In the 'thesis' stage, students need to attend about nine research methods workshops spaced throughout the year on Thursday evenings, plus the EdD weekends.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide professionals from education, training and allied fields with a doctoral programme at the forefront of professional and academic practice through taught coursework and a supervised thesis
  • To provide an overarching teaching and learning strategy designed to enable students to engage in the development of their roles as advanced professionals and researchers within the education, training, health and allied fields
  • To develop comprehensive, contemporary, advanced knowledge of content, research methods and theoretical context in an area of professional practice selected by the student, leading to a contribution to knowledge informed by original research and/or scholarship.
