The Doctor of Education (EdD) focuses on applied investigation and problem solving rather than on a contribution to pure research or to theoretical knowledge. This professional doctorate, comprising coursework units and a thesis, is oriented towards enhancing professional practice and focuses on the professional development of practitioners involved in some aspect of education.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
This course has an initial coursework component followed by a thesis. In January of your first semester, you attend a one-week, on-campus study school to complete the Interdisciplinary Education Studies unit.
Subsequent study schools, during which you work on the methodology and design of your thesis, are held on campus in the second and third semesters of your enrolment (in June/July and the following January).
