This programme concerns the general theme “Teacher Education and Pedagogic Training of Trainers – Concepts and Practices” and it aims to respond to the aspirations of a considerable number of people who already have a Master’s degree and very rightly wish to further their scientific knowledge in the fields of teacher education and educators, and develop research skills towards the fulfillment of a doctoral project.
This course aims to further knowledge and develop skills that enable research projects to be carried out regarding various issues, namely:
Masters in Educational Sciences or in Education or Masters in other scientific fields with a scientific and professional curriculum related to the theme of the course, who are interested in developing their scientific knowledge and competences in the fields of teacher and trainer education.
Holders of a Master’s degree in Educational Sciences or in Education or in other areas may apply, as long as their professional and scientific curriculum is appropriate to the theme of the course. Exceptionally, holders of a Bachelor’s degree or legal equivalent may also apply, if they have a particularly relevant academic or scientific curriculum that is recognised by the Instituto de Educação as attesting their capacity to carry out doctoral studies.
In every case, it is required that the problematic suggested for investigation during the doctoral programme falls under the theme of the advanced course.
Attendance of this doctoral programme presupposes mastery of at least one foreign language (French or English) in terms of listening and writing.
The main way to enter the doctorate is by applying for an open tender for a Doctoral Programme according to the field and specialty, with the indication of the number of places available. This invitation to tender will be advertised through a public notice and is subject to compliance with specific rules and forms.
In the doctoral areas where there is no call for tender, candidates must send an application to the Scientific Council of the Instituto de Educação of the Universidade de Lisboa, formalizing their candidacy. Only in exceptional and duly justified cases may an individual candidacy enter the doctorate in a specialty area in years when an open tender took place.
