Course summary

Overview

The Professional Doctorate is the same level of academic qualification as a PhD (level 8) and is designed for experienced professionals who wish to undertake a programme that is applied in nature and of practical value to their career.

The programme recognises that real-world problems inhabit a space that is dynamic, multi-faceted and complex, and acknowledges this reality by adopting a multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to reflect the professional world. The programme also incorporates the concept of self-reflection, critical reflective practice, and research methodology, with a practical approach to addressing workplace issues and making a distinctive contribution to the profession.

Why us?

  • A doctorate is one of the most internationally transferable qualifications
  • The first 18 months of the programme has a taught element and is designed to prepare you for working and thinking at a doctoral level
  • The remainder of the programme is research only based where you will work with a supervisory team of academic staff (research phase)
