Science and Technology

This online programme lets students combine doctoral level research with their full-time industry career. Students have high-quality distance learning facilities online and there are 5 weekend workshops and 5 supervisory sessions each year. Students can complete their studies in 30-48 months with a Professional Masters (MProf) qualification or spend a further period of up to 2 years completing their thesis for the full doctorate. We can arrange supervision in any area of science or technology, including: built environment; biological conservation; equine and sport science; forensic science. The workshop sessions give students a forum in which to present their research to supervisors and fellow professionals from many disciplines, in a critical but highly supportive setting. They also provide good networking opportunities and face-to-face time with the supervisory team.

Entry requirements

Applicants are expected to have extensive professional experience in the industry, together with the opportunity to undertake research related to their current role and organisation. Direct entry requires a Master's degree but we offer a pre-entry Understanding Research programme for those without. International students: if English is not the 1st language, applicants require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 (or equivalent test score). It is possible that research in this area needs an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate. If we make applicants an offer to study with us we also give them the information they need to apply to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for their ATAS certificate. Receiving the ATAS certificate takes approximately 4 weeks.
