The EdD TESOL aims to provide experienced senior professionals within the field of language teaching with an opportunity to study at advanced level for a doctoral degree by means of a taught programme plus a thesis. The course involves an in-depth examination of issues related to language learning and teaching and language teacher education. It also provides a solid grounding in research methodology appropriate for undertaking research at doctoral level within these fields.

We are committed to and actively engaged in undertaking research into a number of different aspects of TESOL and our students have published in a wide variety of journals. We are a very multicultural course, with students from over 30 countries including Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bahrain, Botswana, Cameroon, Cayman Islands, Canada, China, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, England, Finland, France, Greece, Holland, Iraq, Ireland, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mexico, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, South Africa, Sudan, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United States of America and Wales.

Our Philosophy

The Professional Doctorates Programme is founded in a model of co-operative learning and firmly embedded in the principles and practices of adult and professional education. It provides a safe but challenging space within a supportive community of peers for scholarly reflection on, and experiment with, new concepts and ideas, professional understandings of practice, and research skills.

We favour a style of interaction that places a great deal of emphasis on personal responsibility, self-awareness, recognition of the needs of others and open and honest communication. Our tutors aim to act as facilitators, helping you to develop the necessary critical distance from which: to review and evaluate research, theory, policy and practice; to examine and challenge your own professional practice and its relationship with theory and policy; and to design and undertake your own ethically-informed research.
