Education

The Doctorate in Education offers students the opportunity to combine advanced academic study with professional experience in a manner decided largely by the student, with the support of a Director of Studies and the programme team.
 The programme provides students with the chance to consider the foundations of their conception of research in the experience of educational practice and their stance as an educator-researcher before embarking on a thesis. Initial modules focus on the philosophical and conceptual underpinnings of practice and research. Students are encouraged to develop their reflexivity, positioning themselves as a critically informed practitioner within a field understood as inevitably problematic but open to exploration and possible change through research. Whilst some educational doctorate provision provides a programme of modules covering aspects of sociology, psychology, education, research methods and health studies, this programme focuses on a core of reflection on the combination of research and educational praxis, remaining flexible in its assessment strategy so as to enable students to focus on their own area of interest. It will position students as creative agents able to use academic study and practice to inform each other and synthesise the two to develop responses to challenges and opportunities in practice.
