The University of Liverpool’s online Doctorate in Education – Higher Education (EdD) focuses on the latest practice, research, and leadership thinking in higher education, with an emphasis on universities. And because it is 100% online, you can continue working while you study.
This online doctorate encourages a deep understanding of the role of universities as places of learning and as learning institutions, from a global perspective, allowing you to apply research-based knowledge and critical thinking in practical contexts around the world. The doctorate is designed to be completed 100% online, though students can choose to engage face-to-face with academics during optional residencies on campus in Liverpool.
The online EdD programme promotes the development of visionary leaders as drivers of innovation in education, through a ground-breaking holistic approach. You will advance through increasing levels of complex analysis, with all taught modules linked by common themes – such as leadership and personal impact, collaborative learning and practitioner research.
