The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

We offer supervision for our PhD English Language Teaching in a wide range of areas, including: vocabulary teaching, teaching reading and literacy development, writing pedagogy and academic writing, corpus-based pedagogy, teaching English to young learners, task-based language learning, language testing, classroom interaction, materials design and evaluation, teacher beliefs and teacher identity, and English for Academic Purposes.

Examples of PhD projects which our students have undertaken include students attitudes to native and non-native English language teachers, the role of metacognitive awareness in EFL reading, English teachers beliefs about and practices of teaching methodology, and genre analysis of Japanese and British introductions to PhD theses in the field of literature. This PhD is available as a PhD by Supervised Research (three years) and as an Integrated New Route PhD (four years).

Many of our former PhD students work in higher education institutions around the world, as teachers and/or as academic researchers, but also in teacher education, in the area of educational advice and management, programme evaluation, and syllabus design.
