Support and Supervision
In Part I of the EdD, a range of staff with clear roles is available to support your studies.
- Students can consult with the Programme Director at any time about their needs
- The Part I and Part II Directors of Studies are available to support you in your studies.
- Each elective unit has a staff co-ordinator. It is this person who will provide your closest point of academic support at each stage during Part I of the EdD, in collaboration with staff tutors.
Towards the end of Part I of the programme you begin to identify your thesis topic and make plans towards your research design. Your research proposal will lead to the appointment of your thesis supervisor, a member of staff with expertise and experience in your chosen area of research.
Programme members will maintain contact with the University throughout the programme. This will be facilitated through attendance at residential weekends in Sheffield at key points during their course of study and through e-mail, letter and telephone.
