About this program

The Structured PhD in Education is a research degree that supports students in engaging in research at the highest academic standard. Students work with a lead supervisor and a co-supervisor to develop a substantive piece of research that makes an original contribution to knowledge in the field and tradition of educational research. This requires significant initiative and self-determination on the part of the student. We understand that students have a range of motivations for undertaking PhD research in Education and work with the student to best meet their interests.
Students will be provided with detailed critical feedback on their work and will be supported with ongoing advice on developing their projects. Students also have the opportunity to choose from a range of modules that offer flexibility in designing a pathway that best supports their research project.
Students who are interested in practitioner research and in developing their research as part of a community of practice may wish to learn more about our proposed Doctorate in Education programme (with specialisms in Teacher Education and Educational Leadership). Please feel free to consult with course coordinators if you would like further advice on which one would be most suitable for you.

The MLitt in Education is a research degree, aiming to support students in engaging in an educational project of the highest academic standard, aligned with their own research interests. Students work with a lead supervisor and the support of the departmental advisory team, to undertake research activity and write a masters thesis. This research work is supported by a customised series of taught modules (agreed annually with the department and the supervisor) which is completed with a cohort of fellow research students.
