About this course

The EdD programme is designed with working professionals in mind, providing a flexible and convenient approach to further study. Undertaking an EdD will enable you to generate new knowledge to advance educational practice and policy in Aotearoa New Zealand and other contexts. A Doctor of Education degree has the same status as a PhD. The EdD is a unique, cohort-based doctoral programme where students work with cohort lecturers for the first two years and then with their own research supervisors, who have knowledge and expertise in their area of study and a range of research methods. In 2020, the Doctor of Education programme will be delivered by Te Puna Wānanga, the School of Māori and Indigenous Education.
