Winter School units provide an excellent opportunity for you to learn in a virtual environment whilst working towards your Doctor of Education (EdD) qualification.
By participating in Winter School units, you can:
- exchange ideas with other educators from all around the world
- meet staff and students from our Department of Education virtually
If this is your first EdD unit, you will also receive an introduction to the course.
Due to the ongoing uncertainties worldwide caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we will offer the units planned for January 2023 through directed learning (online) rather than face-to-face, campus-based teaching.
During directed learning units, on a weekly basis you will engage with literature sources identified by tutors, and participate in online discussion via a Moodle forum. In addition, you will be expected to engage in a weekly ‘real-time’ seminar, which will be organised to take into account the time zones of all involved.
EdD units for January 2023
Directed learning units are scheduled to run for 8/9 weeks.
The following units will start on 18 January 2023:

You must pay a £250 deposit when enrolling for a Winter School unit.
Unless exceptional circumstances have been agreed by the Director of Studies, the unit deposit is non-refundable. It will not normally be possible to change units once you have applied.
