Alex Guedes

The structure of the Doctor of Education was particularly appealing, as it allowed me to undertake research at an advanced academic level, with a practical focus relevant to my professional role, and to work with teachers. The Graduate School’s reputation also played a great part in my choice, with its significant standing in the global educational community. Thanks to this, throughout my degree I have been fortunate to meet and work with world renowned educational experts, further increasing my insight into the challenges of educators and educational systems.
