Course Summary

Course overview

On this doctoral programme you will investigate issues that relate to you as an education professional. There will be a focus on areas that shape the context in which you're conducting your research.

The learning style is informal and collegiate. There is a strong emphasis in the first two years on developing your writing. You will also focus on critically engaging with key ideas and developing a research project. The collegiality continues into stage two as you write your doctoral thesis. At this point there will be extended opportunities to share ideas and issues with fellow students and supervisors.

An unusual feature of this doctorate is that the taught modules are shared with professionals from a variety of backgrounds. This allows us to quickly identify the common issues faced by professionals embarking on doctoral-level research. You will see how broad theoretical ideas can be fruitfully applied to specific contexts, and how to apply concepts and ideas to the questions you'd like to explore.

To be admitted to stage two you will need to pass all four modules in stage one. You will also need to successfully pitch your thesis proposal at a transfer panel. Stage two can last between two and four years. During this time you'll keep in touch with us at the May teaching session and individually with your supervisors at other times. Supervisory meetings may be in person or online.
