Doctor of Educational Psychology (DEdPsy)

The Doctor of Educational Psychology (DEdPsy) is a three year full-time course accredited by the British Psychological Society.

The degree serves as the entry qualification for professional practice and employment in educational psychology. It has been designed to meet the professional training needs of educational psychologists and reflect a shift in orientation in professional training which is implicit in a research degree.

Funding is available via the Association of Educational Psychologists.

How does the Doctorate in Educational Psychology differ from a PhD?

Both programmes are of doctorate level. The Doctorate in Educational Psychology is a professional taught programme (units and dissertation) and serves as the entry qualification for professional practice and employment in educational psychology.

However, a PhD programme involves three or more years of independent research on an original topic with the support of one or more academic supervisors.

Applying to Bristol

I am really enjoying my time in Bristol; it is a very comfortable place to live. It is not busy like London, but you can find anything you want and the people are very nice.
