The Doctor of Education is a professional doctorate consisting of a rigorous program of advanced coursework and research, designed specifically to meet the needs of the education industry and education professional groups. It is designed to enable participants to pursue higher degree research within the context of their role in the workplace and to receive academic support and recognition.

The intake for the Doctor of Education is 1 Jan each year. Applications should be made in the year prior to the year they want to commence. A 1 July intake could be considered in special circumstances.

The campus of study will vary depending on the location of the candidate, the supervisor and the research field.

The research topic will reflect the interests of the candidate, their workplace and the expertise of their supervisors. To find an expert in your field of interest, see the Web Access Research Portal (WARP) site.

See Research Degrees | How to Apply for application information.

Please note: this course is only available to Domestic Candidates.

* A full time workload refers to a loading of 1.0, or an equivalent part time loading of 0.5

The Doctor of Education will provide experienced education professionals with the opportunity to make a significant contribution to knowledge and practice in their professional context and may formalise workplace-based research and development. Its interdisciplinary nature and opportunity for inter-professional research provides a framework for the integration of professional expertise and scholarly enquiry.

The course aims to develop the managerial competencies of candidates by equipping them with the ability to evaluate different conceptual approaches to education issues in the context of their own experience and workplace.

Candidates will acquire advanced specialist research training and provide evidence for independent thought and critical analysis, effective communication and expert knowledge of the discipline within a broader framework of knowledge in the international context.

At the University of Tasmania candidates are encouraged to demonstrate academic leadership, increasing independence, creativity and innovation in their research and are supported in their acquisition of a wide range of advanced and transferable skills.
