The professional doctorate can be studied part-time or full-time and focuses on a research topic of the student’s choice. With emphasis on developing a supportive community of students, a series of residential weekends are held each academic year at St Deiniol’s Library, Hawarden, as part of the course.
Degrees awarded from the course include Doctor of Health Sciences (D.H.Sci), Doctor of Public Health (Dr. P.H.), Doctor of Education (Ed. D.) and Doctor of Health in Health and Social Care (D.Health).
