Professional Doctorate in Children & Young People's Services

Course Description

This course has three strands: Children's services; Young people's services; and Youth justice. The course recognises the commonalities between these three fields of service delivery, while enabling students to focus their research on the strand that fits most closely with their specialist area of interest. The PDC & YDS is an intensive part-time research degree developed jointly within the Institute for Applied Social Research at the University of Bedfordshire in partnership with Barnados, the Brathay Trust and Nacro Youth Crime Section. The course is an applied alternative to a PhD for senior practitioners and managers.

Visit the Professional Doctorate in Children & Young People's Services page on the University of Bedfordshire website for more details!

Entry Requirements

You should be a senior practitioner or manager in children and young people's services, youth justice or an allied field and have substantial practice experience, a relevant first degree awarded with upper second or first class Honours and/or a relevant Master's degree or equivalent.
