Course Modules

Research areas

The EdD programme has three components:

  • A taught element consisting of three courses; Foundations of Professionalism in Education, Methods of Enquiry 1 and Methods of Enquiry 2. It is assessed through a portfolio of three assignments of 5,000 words each and a reflective statement. These are completed during your first year on the programme.
  • The institution-focused study (IFS) enabling you to study an organisation concerned with educational provision, organisation and support with which you are professionally connected. While you are preparing for your IFS, you will attend workshops which include input from specialists. You will present an IFS proposal within the first six months of the second year of study and then a final report on the study of about 20,000 words. You will normally present the IFS at the end of the first term
  • A written thesis, in your chosen specialist area, which should be about 45,000 words in length, and should usually be related to your IFS and the taught element of the EdD.
