Bishop Grosseteste University

Research is an integral part of academic life at Bishop Grosseteste and forms one of the defining characteristics of the university’s culture. Research stimulates innovation in learning and teaching, informs our practices and pushes back the boundaries of knowledge and changes lives.

Research is important to us at BG for its intrinsic as well as extrinsic value and our Centre for Educational Development and Research (CEDaR) supports research among staff and students across the institution.

Doctoral Study at Bishop Grosseteste

Studying for a doctoral level qualification is one of the most exciting, stimulating and challenging things you can do. BG’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, you will both join and contribute towards BG’s 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, BG offers the opportunity to study for a full or part-time PhD or a part-time EdD. Each postgraduate route is designed to help obtain a doctoral level qualification, but each is intended to accommodate different student circumstances and preferred modes of study.
