Educational Development

The degrees of MPhil/PhD are research qualifications for those who are, or aspire to be, senior academic or administrative leaders of primary, secondary or tertiary educational institutions, or university lecturers or researchers. Students decide the focus for their research in negotiation with supervisors. Individual tutorials are held at mutually agreed times and may be undertaken by email or phone in addition to face-to-face.

Entry requirements

Applicants should possess a good Honours degree and, usually, a Master's degree. Relevant professional experience is taken into consideration.

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on the completion of a thesis (80,000 words for PhD students; 40,000 words for MPhil students), along with an oral defense.

Sponsorship information

All UK or EU students who hold a First or Upper Second Class Honours degree from another institution will receive a 20% reduction in tuition fees when they enrol on a University of Lincoln taught Master's programme. The scholarship is offset against tuition fee payments due for each academic year of study. Please note that the Master of Architecture (Part Two) and MBA programmes are exceptions to this scheme, as other scholarships are in place for those courses.
