Prior learning requirements

Assessment strategy

The Research Thesis (40,000 – 50,000 words) should form a contribution to the knowledge of the subject area and show evidence of originality, either by the discovery of new evidence, or by the exercise of independent critical power. A reflective statement (2,000 words) summarising what the student has learnt from the doctorate as a whole and how this has impacted on their professional practice must be submitted along with the thesis.The thesis is examined by two examiners, at least one of whom must be external to the university, through a viva voce.
