Professional Doctorate in Education Professional Doctorate in Health and Social Care

A fully-funded PhD fellowship is available at Open University. This position is closed on March 04, 2019.

The Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies (WELS) welcomes applicants for places on the long-established EdD and the newly launched Doctorate in Health and Social Care.

The EdD and DHSC programmes offer advanced study and research, with a focus on valuing professional practice. They offer you the chance to enhance your professional career to doctoral level, through making a unique and original contribution to your profession, while continuing to work and progress in your field. The programme is a flexible part-time degree structured in two stages. It provides you with the opportunity to develop as a researcher, to develop skills and competence in a range of areas, including research skills and techniques, research environment, research management, personal effectiveness, communication skills, networking and team working, and career management.

The professional doctorates are located in an environment that supports world-leading quality research. In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) the UK government endorsed our research as overwhelmingly world-leading and internationally excellent, with significant and wide-reaching impact.

The programmes combine online, supported distance learning in conjunction with intensive residential weekends in Milton Keynes. The programmes have been designed to enable busy practitioners to study at doctoral level whilst also continuing to work in their professional field of practice.

Our large, international group of professional doctorate students are an essential part of our research community. If you feel you have the drive and intellectual curiosity to pursue postgraduate research as part of that community and you have a great idea for a doctoral study, then we want to hear from you!
