Course summary

This degree programme is aimed at eligible candidates who have not previously been able to register for a higher degree, but have been research active and publishing - or making research available - in the public domain, to submit a collection of works with a health-related focus for consideration for the award of a PhD.

The submission must evidence that the candidate has personally made a systematic study; that they have shown independent, critical and original powers; and that they have made a distinct contribution to knowledge. The submission as a whole must be framed as a single coherent research project and meet the QAA Framework for Higher Education Qualifications Descriptor for Doctoral level (Level 8) work.

Prior to acceptance onto the programme, an applicant will be asked to produce a report providing an overview of the publications/contributions they have made (hereafter referred to as the prima facie case). This will be independently reviewed to ensure the applicant broadly has an appropriate background and experience for acceptance onto the programme.

Once accepted onto the programme,which is part-time with a maximum duration of 12 months, candidates will work towards producing a research portfolio that will evidence they have: personally made a systematic study; shown independent, critical and original powers; and made a distinct contribution to knowledge. In addition to the research outputs, the research portfolio must also include an integrative summary written by the candidate of between 7500-15000 words. The purpose of the integrative summary is to provide a critical overview and synthesis of the research outputs submitted and their contribution to the discipline. In preparing the research portfolio, the candidate will be advised and assisted by a Director of Studies (DoS) who is experienced in the subject area, and who has successfully supervised at least two doctoral level degrees to completion.
