About Doctorate of Education at Bishop Grosseteste University

The Doctorate of Education (EdD) is the premier academic qualification for experienced professionals working in the education sector. It is aimed at those who intend to extend their professional development and understanding through research and reflection on practice. The EdD is ideally suited to those who benefit from studying in a structured, collegiate environment with the first two years comprising of taught modules. These modules enable the development of research skills and the intellectual rigour demanded of professionals at doctoral level. They also provide the foundation for the subsequent period of study, the thesis stage, during which a thesis is written focused on an area of professional interest.

A supportive cohort is a key feature of the EdD. BGU offers a single entry system, ensuring that students move through the taught modules together, enabling the development of a strong community. This community will facilitate peer review and reflection in a safe but challenging and stimulating intellectual environment. The cohort experience is further enriched by working closely with a small team of research active academics who will guide and support students throughout all aspects of the programme.

Entry requirements

The entry requirements for an EdD are normally a 2:1 or 1st Bachelors Honours Degree, a Master's degree and at least three years' professional experience. At the point of application, you should be able to demonstrate that you have already identified a potential research project within a chosen discipline or field of enquiry. It is a part-time programme, typically taking 4-5 years to complete. The EdD is validated by the University of Leicester but will be delivered at BGU.

What students think about Bishop Grosseteste University

    Fubo

    Testimonial from Fubo, student at Bishop Grosseteste University

    "I first heard about BGU was when I searched for pictures online and I found this university - the photos are so beautiful. Education has always been what I wanted to do, ever since school. I researched a lot of information about the university, and I found out about BGU’s good reputation in education.

    The location is great. I live in Crosstrend house which is really near the town, and I can find the supermarket easily - I was excited to move over from China! The city is really beautiful. Especially up the top of the hill, the Cathedral is beautiful. You only see this kind of place in movies so it’s really good for me to see it in real life.

    All the staff and students are very nice and I love the placements offered through my course. I really enjoy getting to go into schools - it’s giving me a lot of useful experience. The students on my course are really nice - I can always ask them for help which is great as everything is still new for me! The atmosphere on campus is great, everyone is so friendly.

    If you want to study Education then this university is the best choice in my opinion!"

    Xian, PGCE student

    Testimonial from Xian, PGCE student, student at Bishop Grosseteste University

    "Lincoln is a nice place for students for two reasons – the environment and the local people. Even though Lincoln is small, it offers everything I need – I like that everything is in walking distance. In addition, the people here are friendly and helpful and they are always willing to talk to me or help me. As an international student here, I have never felt isolated or bored in Lincoln.

    I would definitely say that the staff make BGU different. Honestly, all the staff at BGU are amazing! They are not only professional but also very helpful and kind. The staff here are willing to do their best to help me. I remember once a teacher asked me the difference between BGU and the other university I went to in the past – I said ‘BGU is like a loving family’. As an international student, I could not ask for a better studying experience abroad. I am grateful studying at BGU, and the great memories that I have here will last for a lifetime."

    Testimonial from Moses Gunda Aza – MA in Education (TESOL), student at Bishop Grosseteste University

    The MA in Education with TESOL course is wonderful. Although I’ve been a language teacher for the past five years it has taught me skills and techniques I never even knew existed until now.

    I had a strong knowledge of linguistics but lacked the sufficient teaching skills to apply it to classrooms so when I was looking at options for where to study, the course at BGU really stood out. Seeing the course modules on offer and reading about BGU’s teaching background, I knew I belonged here.

    When I finish this course I want to go straight back into my role as a language teacher, only this time I want to be as effective and efficient as the course has taught me to be. The course has given me the knowledge and skills to really teach others and taken my abilities to a whole new level. Without exaggerating, I have accomplished much more at BGU than I ever could have expected.

    Before I arrived on Campus I had never actually been to England but BGU has been a home away from home and even though I’ve now been able to visit more places across the UK none have offered the same atmosphere as BGU.

    Acclimatising to life at BGU was really easy thanks to the overwhelming support I received from the university both in and outside of my classrooms. Course mates, faculty, the Library, CELT wherever I’ve been everyone has been wonderful. Everyone wants to be your friend at BGU and most of the time help is on offer before you have to ask for it. Several times now I’ve had people go out of their way to help me find my classrooms, even walking with me to them when they were heading in completely the opposite direction. It really surprised me how people from so many different backgrounds have come together at BGU to create a harmonious society, the community here is amazing.


    I would say to anyone thinking of coming to BGU that if they are looking for quality and a community that recognises all its members as equal and provides the best facilities and teaching for its students then this is the place for them. Nowhere else.
