Studying for a research degree is an intensive and demanding commitment and a uniquely rewarding experience that can change your life as well as your career. That is why, across the University, considerable practical and academic support is offered to all research students. During your studies you will be supported by a supervisory team who will guide you in the development of your project. They will offer advice and encouragement at every stage, helping you to develop increasing independence as you gain knowledge of your field. You will also broaden your knowledge of research training by attending and/or engaging with the University&rsquo s postgraduate research student development programme and related research seminars hosted on campus or at national or international conferences.
This programme is designed for those whose work involves them in innovative and advanced professional or creative practice and enables them to receive academic credit for that work, assuming it is at doctoral level. Route A is for people who already have substantial evidence of that practice and enables candidates, with the help and advice of academic and professional supervisors, to select the most appropriate evidence for inclusion in their submission and to prepare a 65&ndash 65,555-word critical commentary which contextualises, analyses and makes the case for the publications to be considered as an original and independent contribution to knowledge and therefore justify the award of a PhD.

Having a writing friend? is a good idea. If they 8767 re working on their thesis at the same time, so much the better, but the most important thing is that they be willing to give you feedback on rough drafts, meet regularly to chart your progress and give you psychological support, and preferably that they be familiar enough with your field to understand and review your writing.
You should remember that professional doctoral degrees are not research doctorates in those fields. The research doctorate in all such fields is either the . or one of the related research doctorates named in the list immediately above.
