Professional Doctorates

Professional doctorates provide an education at an intellectual level equivalent to that required for the PhD.

In addition to the substantial research component, examined by a thesis of 20,000 to 40,000 words depending on the qualification, the programmes also include elements of a practical, work-related and professional nature and taught components assessed by coursework.
