Doctor of Education (Educational Leadership and Policy Studies)
The EdD. is a professional doctorate that includes both coursework and research components. It offers a variety of relevant courses and supervised thesis research. The EdD. programme aims to help experienced professionals to develop a deep understanding of their chosen areas of study and to encourage them in the search for innovative approaches to educational inquiry and practical insights to help them in resolving educational problems.
A critical reflection on our EdD. has yielded new courses that are designed to suit the needs of education professionals who seek to meet the challenges of educational change effectively but insist on becoming thoroughly grounded in the theory and practice of defined areas of study. Graduation requirements of this new EdD. programme better reflect its dual emphasis on coursework and research.
EdD. comprises three required courses, four electives from research related courses and two electives from courses offered by the Division of Education. Candidates must successfully complete 21 units of coursework before the granting of candidature, and 9 units of research thesis after advancement to EdD. candidature to be awarded the EdD.

Having been an educational practitioner for a number of years, I was looking for ways to be invigorated. After completed the required 21 units of coursework and granted of candidature, I could say that the programme provided a strong basis for my further exploration in the field. Through the combination of lectures by renowned departmental academics, sharing sessions by alumni, seminars by internationally recognized intellectuals etc, my own professional capital is developing and increasing. This is not an easy programme. However, anyone who wants to strengthen his/her own practice of leadership in order to help his/her own organization thrive in a changing world should consider it seriously. (Mok Sui Kei, Yr 3)
