Thinking of doing a Professional Doctorate Course in 2011?

26 May 2011

(Recruiting for October 2011)

Applications are invited for these part-time research degrees. Professional Doctorates are distinguished from the PhD in both form and rationale: they involve a significant proportion of teaching as well as a smaller research thesis and their aim is to integrate academic and professional knowledge in new ways. Module topics include:

  • Teaching and Learning 
  • Health, Medicine and Society
  • Management in Social Care
  • Research Design
  • Research and Evidence-based
  • Advanced Social Work Practice
  • Policy and Practice

Admission to our Professional Doctorates is in October each year.

Please note that the deadline for the submission of applications is 1 July 2011. Late applications may be considered.

Further information can be found on our Professional Doctorate pages.

Application forms may be downloaded from the main postgraduate section of the main University web site.
