Entry requirements

The minimal qualification for PhD applicants is: a good bachelor's degree in a relevant subject, an excellent research proposal. However, a Master's degree is often preferred as evidence of some experience in research. Holders of other qualifications are welcome to apply. Candidates will be expected to be undertaking professional practice in a practice setting which will normally involve service delivery and practice in the specialist area to which the theme of their Doctoral Programme is related. Practice specialism might be defined in terms of a particular problem area, a technique or approach to professional work or a specific type of practice or service provision. The nature of this professional practice should be such as to enable candidates to develop further identified, discrete professional skills in relation to the area of their specialisation.
