About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The Level 10 Professional Doctorate aims to: Provide an original contribution to knowledge through research or scholarship, as judged by independent experts, applying international standards; Involves a sustained, rigorous and systematic approach to the relevant body of knowledge, undertaken through experimentation, archival work or other appropriate means; Advances knowledge through the discovery and codification of new information or the development of further understanding about existing information (often characterized by fruitful new topics for investigation and unexpected uses for its findings); Its findings must be open to scrutiny and formal evaluation in the field, and this may be achieved through publication or public presentation. Aspects within the Professional Doctoral programme incorporate (but are not limited to) these guiding points.
