Course Summary

About this degree

The EdD is a research degree for experienced professionals from education and related fields who would like to extend their professional understanding and develop skills in research, evaluation and high-level reflection on practice. The student cohort provides an important element of the programme. Research undertaken on the EdD programme can be based in any area in education, subject to the applicant being able to identify suitable principal and subsidiary supervisors within UCL Institute of Education (IOE). Potential candidates are advised to explore UCL IRIS and the IOE department and centre list to identify appropriate supervisors before submitting an application. Applications submitted without agreement from a principal supervisor in the Department of Learning and Leadership cannot be considered.

Careers

EdD graduates are currently working as teachers, university and college lecturers and researchers, college principals and directors, policy analysts and education consultants.

Employability

Research undertaken at UCL Institute of Education will help students build connections between education and other related areas, such as economic and social status, employment, medicine, health and welfare, child development and families. In searching out answers to major questions and looking for solutions to fundamental social issues, our students will develop careers which have a direct bearing on all members of society. Through their research, students will make a contribution to both professional and academic knowledge

Modules

The aim of this course is to stimulate awareness of a broad range of research methods and to enhance the ability to select an appropriate method to use by carefully considering the range of alternatives. Moreover, by working through your own chosen problem, you will be given the opportunity to focus on the detailed side of using the various methods as well as being exposed to the solutions worked out by others in group tutorials. Invited speakers will present specific topics according to their expertise on the most frequently used research methods of data collection and analysis.
