Our Doctorate in Education programme attracts high achieving participants interested in a wide range of aspects of teaching, learning, management and policy. It features excellent doctoral level research and specialist units taught by international researchers.
We explore different facets of the research process and contemporary educational debates as well as developing skills in research methods, theory, argumentation and evaluation skills. Students recommend studying for a Doctorate in Education at Bristol to their peers because it has helped them to develop deep understanding of real life professional issues.
This programme is taught by Bristol University staff in Hong Kong, as part of a long association with the School of Continuing and Professional Education (SCOPE) at City University of Hong Kong.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
An upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent); a Masters degree or equivalent qualification in Education; and at least three years appropriate professional experience.
Funding is managed through City University, Hong Kong.
