About Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at Queen's University Belfast

The Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD) TESOL, which is a combination of both taught and research elements, provides an alternative route to the PhD for mid-career and senior professionals in English language education and related disciplines. We offer a wide range of taught modules in the areas of research methods (three compulsory), TESOL (two compulsory), education policy, education management and professional development.

 

"'I was able to choose my elective modules according to my schedule and my particular field of interest. One advantage was that the EdD TESOL (the taught elements) is conducted intensively and can be completed in less than one and a half years.' "Chiu-Kuei Chang Chien
