  • Doctor of Education (EdD) Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in Dubai

    The EdD is a ‘Professional Doctorate’ which is equivalent in level to a PhD, but includes a modular phase as well as the thesis. It is particularly suited to professionals who aim to link research closely with their existing professional practice. The PhD is more suited to those planning to become professional researchers.

    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.

Programme structure

This part-time programme entails a number of intensive weekend periods of study (up to seven per year) conducted at our Dubai Centre. The modules are taught in Dubai by lecturers from the Graduate School of Education. Excellent classroom facilities and library facilities are available as well as support from two local tutors who provide academic support in the form of group and individual tutorials. The remainder of the course will involve distance learning and individual study.

Doctoral students attend five modules during the first two years, after this they conduct their research project for the thesis.  Blended learning and online facilities are available to help you finish your degree in good time.
