What will I learn?
Lead educational transformation and change. In the Doctor of Philosophy (Education) you will design and undertake an independent research project under the guidance of a senior academic and an associate supervisor, culminating in an 80,000-word thesis. Cultivate research expertise and specialist knowledge as you enhance your professional and academic opportunities.
At the completion of their probationary year, candidates must submit an extended thesis proposal for presentation to their thesis committee. This proposal should be 8000 - 10,000 words and include a critical review of relevant literature and an outline of the student's proposed methodology. The final decision regarding acceptance of the thesis proposal rests with the student's thesis committee. If the committee decides a candidate has not met all the conditions of their probation (including coursework, where indicated), they will be required to change candidature to the MPhil degree.
