Doctoral Study


Studying for a doctoral level qualification is one of the most exciting, stimulating and challenging things you can do. BGU's innovative doctoral programmes are designed to empower you as a professional educator to conduct robust research focused on the critical analysis of evidence, pushing back the boundaries of knowledge, developing policy and professional practice, and improving the quality of education as a whole. By undertaking doctoral level study with us, you will both join and contribute towards our growing community of scholars and intellectual community in the heart of the cathedral and historic city of Lincoln. With degrees awarded by the University of Leicester, BGU offers you the opportunity to study for a full or part-time PhD or a part-time EdD. Each postgraduate route is designed to help you obtain your doctoral level qualification, but each is intended to accommodate different student circumstances and preferred modes of study.
