About the course

Professional doctorates are work-based programmes and studied part time. They offer you the chance to enhance your professional career to doctoral level enabling you to make a unique contribution to your profession or area of practice, while continuing to work and progress in your field.

Professional doctorates aim to equip practitioners with the research skills, expertise and confidence to advance their practice and become champions of change within their areas of professional practice. The programmes promote the creation and interpretation of new professional knowledge and practice, resolving or reframing a professional dilemma, or contributing to the development of new ideas, methods or approaches.
