The Doctor of Education (Ed. D) is a professional qualification. It has three distinct orientations – research, teaching and professional work. This professional doctoral programme is closely related to the development of practice within the profession. Apart from obtaining vast
knowledge in educational areas, this programme provides graduate students in-depth knowledge in specific areas through quality courses, exposure to educational issues and intellectual discourses such as symposiums, seminars, conferences, internship and researches. The Ed. D typically seeks to constantly bring evidence-based research tools to bear on practical issues within teaching and learning and within the management of the educational system.
