Doctorate of Education (EdD)

The Doctorate of Education (EdD) is the premier academic qualification for experienced professionals working in the education sector. It is aimed at those who intend to extend their professional development and understanding through research and reflection on practice. The EdD is ideally suited to those who benefit from studying in a structured, collegiate environment with the first two years comprising of taught modules. These modules enable the development of research skills and the intellectual rigour demanded of professionals at doctoral level. They also provide the foundation for the subsequent period of study, the thesis stage, during which a thesis is written focused on an area of professional interest.

A supportive cohort is a key feature of the EdD. BGU offers a single entry system, ensuring that students move through the taught modules together, enabling the development of a strong community. This community will facilitate peer review and reflection in a safe but challenging and stimulating intellectual environment. The cohort experience is further enriched by working closely with a small team of research active academics who will guide and support students throughout all aspects of the programme.
