Course summary

The Professional Doctorate Programme offers English language professionals an opportunity to gain a research qualification at doctoral level linked to their area of work or professional expertise.

A professional doctorate is equivalent to a more traditional PhD by Research in terms of the original contribution to knowledge a candidate is expected to make in a given field, but it involves a taught part in addition to the advanced research each student undertakes.

Students on this programme complete six modules covering the areas English language education, literature and linguistics, before embarking on a research project related to their professional interests and experience.

Graduates of the programme are awarded the title Doctor of English Language Education (DELE).

Course Overview

During the taught part (Part 1, Year 1) of the programme, a student studies six modules covering English language education, literature and linguistics.

All modules are worth 30 credits (180 credits in total) and are assessed through coursework assignments.

Part 2 of the programme (worth 360 credits) is a period of supervised advanced research (Years 2 and 3) leading to the submission of a research portfolio, including a research dissertation of 60,000 words, at the end of Year 3.

Assessment
