Course Summary

This is an accelerated route for experienced practitioners and researchers, who already have a substantial number of publications in a thematically linked area. These should be strong publications which form a coherent body of research and illustrate extensive experience of independent research. All of the publications should be in the public domain and demonstrate a depth of originality and scholarship and should include eight or more peer reviewed articles. Applicants should submit their current publications (or the sub-set they want to have considered) and a statement indicating the unifying theme of their research and its contribution to knowledge. This will be evaluated and, if judged to be of appropriate standard for PhD, candidates will be invited to an interview. Candidates must be graduates (or equivalent) of at least five years, with a Master’s degree, and show evidence of having received research training or equivalent experience in their work environment. A Master's qualification typically comprises 180 credits, a PGDip 120 credits, a PGCert 60 credits, and an MFA 300 credits.
