About

The  PhD (Professional) Education at University of Lincoln is designed for current and future educators who wish to conduct original research relating to their professional context or area of educational practice, and aims to support the dissemination, development, and management of a range of professional practice and policy development.

Overview

Students will undertake three core modules, two optional modules, and a research component where they can conduct field work, analyse their data in light of existing knowledge, and write a thesis for examination.

During the taught stage, core modules aim to support students in identifying their specific research questions through a critical review of the literature; develop the requisite knowledge, understanding, and practical skills in appropriate research methods; and produce a compelling rationale and plan for conducting a substantive piece of original research. 

Optional modules present opportunities for further learning, while the research component involves rigorous data collection and analysis to produce a 60,000-word thesis that systematically presents research, learning, and contribution to knowledge.
