University of Dundee
Entrants should hold a 1st degree in a relevant subject, and usually a relevant Master's degree. Entrants are expected to have some field experience in education or be currently working in the field. Entrants with different experience may be suitable for other professional doctorate degrees (in educational psychology, education, community learning and development). IELTS of 6.5 (or equivalent), if the 1st language is not English.
The 1st module focuses on research methods, combining an online course on research methodology, an applied dissertation and a learning plan. The 2nd of the programme modules comprises a critical literature review. The remaining 3 consist of a series of linked research projects or a combination into 2 or 1 larger project.
The total written output required is the same as Ph.D. candidates would put into 1 single thesis. However, for the Professional Doctorate this can be split into 5 modular products each of 15,000 words. Students can combine these into larger and deeper studies if they wish, subject to the agreement of a personal supervisor.
