What Will You Study

This part-time structured PhD programme is undertaken entirely online over four years. It enables higher education (H.E.) professionals to become autonomous researchers and gain deeper insight into their professional practices and concerns. It is designed for a diverse range of people who work in H.E. or H.E.-related contexts.

During the first two years participants undertake modules covering key issues for H.E. including policy and change, enhancing learning, teaching and assessment, and evaluation. In years 3 and 4 they undertake research and write a thesis supported by a supervisor. Participants benefit from studying with a cohort of students who act as critical friends.
