Our Joint PhD courses provide you with an in-depth understanding of educational theories, teaching practices, and research methods as they relate to your chosen field of study: (a) Cognition and Learning; (b) Educational Leadership and Policy Studies; or (c) Social/ Cultural/ Political Contexts of Education. Each course builds your knowledge and skills to help you prepare for your dissertation research and complete your studies.
You are able to complete doctoral courses both in and out of the classroom through face-to-face seminars, independent study courses, and online learning opportunities.
