About the course


The Professional Doctorate is an alternative pathway to a doctorate qualification. It is a rigorous programme of advanced study and research, designed specifically to meet the needs of commerce, industry and professional groups and is the professionally-oriented counterpart to the more theoretical PhD. It enables you to study a specific subject to the same depth as PhD students, but also to apply learning to your professional practice.

Application deadline

We strongly recommend you apply as soon as possible before the start of the course, in September 2022. This way, you won’t miss out on the critical opening weeks of your course and university events.
