Doctoral Studies

Two doctoral programmes are offered at the School of Education independent of faculty, Ph.D and Ed.D. The goal of the doctoral programme is to bolster the abilities of candidates in independent scientific research and scholarly activities.

Doctoral studies are expected to take 3-5 years with normal progress and are usually commenced after completing a Master's degree.

In addition, the programme is intended to strengthen Icelandic research in the fields of education, nurture, training, pedagogy, and leisure. This entails training in preparation and implementation of research studies, processing and interpretation of research findings, presentation and discussion of findings of the candidate's own research in the context of the body of knowledge in the field of scholarship, and publication in international peer-reviewed journals. 

Application deadline: 1 February.
