Professional Practice

The professional doctorate is awarded to a candidate who, having critically investigated and evaluated an approved organisation-centred topic resulting in a fundamental advance in organisation-centred performance, or professional practice topic resulting in a fundamental advance in theory and practice, and demonstrated an understanding of appropriate research methods, has presented and defended a thesis, by viva voce, to the satisfaction of the examiners.

Entry requirements

We would normally expect applicants to have an Honours degree at upper 2nd Class (2.1) and/or an appropriate Master's degree. Some supervisors may ask applicants for additional entry requirements such as relevant work experience, evidence of written work, or previous study of a particular subject. Entry requirements may vary so it is important to discuss applications in principle before submitting a formal application.

Course modules

There are no taught units resulting in the course being very flexible, there are 4 elements to the course: research; practice development; literature review; personal narrative.
