Overview

  • For some, the established PhD route of individual, in-depth study of one specialised topic is the most appropriate approach to research. 
  • The Education Doctorate Programme programme is offered by the Bangor University.
  • For many others, however, there is a need for a new approach which provides a broad-based knowledge of a number of aspects of education together with the opportunity to research a specific issue of professional concern. 
  • The EdD programme provides for those needs by combining taught units with an individually supervised thesis.

    PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English Academic) is a language test that enables students to demonstrate their writing, listening, speaking, and reading skills when applying to study in English. Delivered and marked by computer, it reports on a scale between 10 and 90.

General Requirements

  • It is possible for students who have been following the MA in Education Studies programme to move up to the EdD programme after completing Part 1 of the MA without moving on to the MA dissertation. Transfer of credits into the EdD is evaluated case by case, as the EdD is essentially a research degree.
  • Applicants who are not native English speakers should have either an IELTS result of 6.0 or above, with no individual score lower than 5.5, or a TOFEL score of 560 paper-based or 220 computer-based, unless they have already studied at university level through the medium of English.
