Professional Doctorate in Occupational Psychology


Course Description

Our professional doctorate is an applied research degree, based on a similar model to that of the PhD. It is based on a ‘workplace challenge’ framework in which the challenges embedded within your professional practice and day-to-day work form an essential component of the learning, development and research process. As well as allowing you to use current work as a substrate for a research-based doctoral qualification, the programme also fulfils the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements of the British Psychological Society.
