This is a distance e-learning programme delivered via Moodle, the University’s chosen Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).  Our approach to learning and teaching emphasises the construction and maintenance of an online learning community that is both challenging and supportive.  Participants are offered both flexibility and supportive scaffolding via a series of formative learning activities structured around four or five milestone targets for each taught course.  Learning support takes the form of group and individual communications facilitated by VLE-enabled discussions and supplemented by the appropriate use of email, Skype, telephone, and face-to-face meetings if appropriate.  Increasingly staff and participants are using synchronous web communication tools for additional interaction.

All programme participants are automatically enrolled in the EdD Common Room in which there is advice on the use of Moodle, academic literacy and learning support resources appropriate to this level of study. Three weeks prior to commencing the first EdD course, students participate in an online induction programme set within the space and context of the first course.  That programme seeks to ensure that all feel competent and confident in using the Moodle learning environment prior to commencing their formal studies.

Each taught course in years one to three has an integral face-to-face weekend study school that is, ordinarily, compulsory and focuses on providing support and interaction around the sharing of academic experience and professional practice relevant to the respective courses.  When students are in years four and five of the programme, the dissertation phase, each participant works individually with a designated supervisor whilst retaining membership of a learning community via an online Moodle space designed to facilitate progress sharing, issue raising and continuing supportive group interaction.

Participants are normally expected to be online at least once a week, to contribute to discussions and other course activities and to complete all milestone activities.

'My experiences on programme have been most rewarding. The interaction with fellow students in the first three years was invaluable in becoming part of a strong community of fellow students bound together by our postgraduate studies. The different perspectives from students with different fields of interests, backgrounds and experiences contributed greatly to my enjoyment. The supervision I had during the writing of my dissertation was first-rate. The supervisors were supportive and most helpful and helped me overcome some of the more daunting moments of my doctoral journey. I highly recommend the EdD at Glasgow - as an overseas student based in South Africa, I felt very much a part of the University community.'

Pauline Patrick

'In the first three years I gained a great deal from the lectures and online interactions with the tutors. The seminars also provided opportunities for students from all over the world to interact and learn from each other. These discussions were refreshing and informative. In years four and five I was assigned a supervisor who, as an accomplished researcher and excellent teacher, guided me towards the submission of my thesis. For me, this programme has been a catalyst, not only has it had a direct impact on how I teach art, it has increased my confidence in my writing and research skills and provided me with the impetus to return to my own art making.'

    Why this programme

    • The Doctorate is comparable to a PhD in terms of scale and rigour. It differs in that it provides a structured programme of advanced study that is relevant to your profession and focused on the inter-relationship of research, policy and practice.
    • There’s a focus on collaborative learning, drawing on your own experiences and those of your academic colleagues.
    • As you focus your studies into specialist areas, you will benefit from the activity of our five knowledge and research transfer groups: Creativity, culture and faith; Interdisciplinary science education, technologies and learning; Professional learning and leadership; Pedagogy, policy and practice; Social justice, place and lifelong education.

    Programme structure

    Years 1, 2 and 3

    You will take six core courses each lasting one semester and each with one weekend in Glasgow. 

    • Critical reflection in professional learning and practice
    • Education policy
    • Educational futures
    • Ethics and education OR Lifelong learning
    • Open studies one: Advancing research methods
    • Open studies two: Applying research methods

    Years 3 and 4

    Work towards the submission of a dissertation of 50,000 to 60,000 words, supported by an appropriate supervisor.

    You normally undertake two courses per year. Progressing at a normal pace, successful candidates can complete the Doctorate in five years.  However, we realise that circumstances occasionally mean participants need to take a break from studies and the programme allows candidates to suspend their studies for a limited time period.

    English language requirements

    For applicants whose first language is not English, the University sets a minimum English Language proficiency level.

    International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Academic module (not General Training):

    • overall score 7.0
    • no sub-test less than 7.0
    • or equivalent scores in another recognised qualification:

    Common equivalent English language qualifications

    All stated English tests are acceptable for admission for both home/EU and international students for this programme:

    • ibTOEFL: 100; no sub-test less than:
      • Reading: 24
      • Listening: 24
      • Speaking: 23
      • Writing: 27
    • CAE (Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English): 185; no sub-test less than 185

The University is also able to accept an IELTS test (Academic module) from any of the 1000 IELTS test centres from around the world and we do not require a specific UKVI IELTS test for degree level programmes. We therefore still accept any of the English tests listed for admission to this programme.

    Pre-sessional courses

    The University of Glasgow accepts evidence of the required language level from the English for Academic Study Unit Pre-sessional courses. We also consider other BALEAP accredited pre-sessional courses:
