    The Doctor of Education (EdD) is a terminal degree that prepares individuals to become experts in the field of education. This professional doctorate program equips learners with the skills and knowledge necessary to address complex educational issues, engage in research, and contribute to policy development.

    With a focus on the practical application of knowledge gained through coursework and independent research projects, our Doctor of Education programme enables graduate students to become thought leaders in their respective fields while also preparing them for executive-level positions within educational institutions or government agencies. The depth and breadth of our curriculum ensure that students develop not only expertise in specific areas but also gain an understanding of how these areas interconnect within broader conceptual frameworks such as social justice or globalisation. 

    Pursuing an EdD degree at our institution offers a unique opportunity for educators passionate about improving teaching practices by developing expertise that enables them to make valuable contributions towards shaping policies affecting both local and global contexts.
