What is a PhD in Education?

  • PhDs in Education are doctoral research degrees that allow students to deeply explore a particular aspect of education.
  • Specifics vary drastically between programmes, but may involve research into the complexities of how people learn, the effectiveness of educational policies, and the impact of educational practices on diverse populations.
  • Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Education, Psychology or Sociology. A relevant Masters degree may also be required depending on the programme.

Why study a PhD in Education?

Develop Skills and Knowledge

A PhD in Education allows you to not only develop your own knowledge of Education, but also to make a unique, original contribution to the subject as a whole. By doing so, you will hone a variety of transferable skills, such as:

  • Research and Analytical Skills: Ability to design, conduct, and analyse complex research projects.
  • Critical Thinking and Problem-Solving: Expertise in evaluating educational theories and practices to address challenges.
  • Communication and Presentation Skills: Proficiency in effectively conveying ideas and findings to diverse audiences.

Further Career Development

If you're hoping for a career in academia, a PhD is typically required. Other research-based careers may likewise require a PhD, and even when they don't, employers will value the research skills and knowledge developed during your degree. For more information, please visit our PhD employability guide.

After completing your PhD in Education, a potential career option might be employment as an Education Consultant. According to UK salary data from Glassdoor, an Education Consultant earns an average of £34,305 per year, dependent on factors such as experience, employer and employment location.

Improve Employability

Completing a PhD may also improve your employability. According to the UK government's LEO Graduate and Postgraduate Outcomes survey, 73% of Education PhD students were in further education or employment three years after graduation.
