PhD in Global Education

PhD in Global Education

The online PhD in Global Education is a structured PhD designed to develop you into an educational researcher with a global outlook. Using research to change yourself and society, this programme is ideal for those looking to undertake a PhD whilst working in an educational setting - wherever you are in the world.

The PhD aims to develop the capability of individuals to work within a professional context whilst researching and theorising their own practice in schools, universities or other educational contexts. 

Delegates will be colleagues who construct their identities as practitioners and/or policy makers, and your prime motivation will be to generate professional knowledge, applying this to practice, and ultimately advancing your career. 

Integrated within this programme is a track to master’s by research, which you can take if you do not wish to progress to the PhD. You will have the opportunity to build up, through the degree, a substantial piece of original research that has real relevance to policy and/or practice.

Key features
  • A structured route to completion through nine portfolio submissions.
  • Significant taught element (60 credits of relevant master’s level 7 modules, delivered online).
  • Comprehensive induction and researcher development training workshops tailored to an international, at-distance cohort and delivered online.
  • The development of a global network of postgraduate researchers who are supported to develop as a cohort of peers and a community of practice.
