PhDs and Professional Doctorates


Что я буду изучать?

We offer full-time (three years) and part-time (six years) doctoral training programmes (including PhDs and a Professional Doctorate) in topics or research approaches in which QMU researchers have expertise. You will create a significant piece of original research and, in the process, gain advanced research knowledge and skills, putting you in a very strong position for progression in your chosen academic or professional field, or to change the direction of your career. Our programmes include a Doctoral Certificate award achieved by completing three READ (Researcher Enhancement and Development) modules of 20 credits at SCQF Level 12.

Your doctorate is a substantial piece of learning and research, reflecting three or more years of endeavour, that has commercial, cultural or social value. It is also a process through which you will acquire advanced research knowledge, skills and expertise, be challenged and possibly transform as a person. The training programme for your doctorate will require significant personal discipline, time and commitment. In return, your sense of achievement at the end will be immense, and successful completion of your doctorate will open up a range of opportunities for career advancement.

Why QMU?

  • As a student in our Graduate School, you will benefit from a large range of support for all aspects of your studies.
  • Students receive academic support from their individual supervisory team as well as their Head of Division and/or Research Centre Director. Our Academic Schools also have a dedicated Postgraduate School Research Coordinator, who is available for independent consultation and support.


You would usually complete a doctoral programme, including the READ modules, in three years full-time or six years part-time. On the successful completion of READ, you will be awarded the 60-credit level 12 Doctoral Certificate in addition to any doctoral award for your research. We were the first university in Scotland to provide a formal academic award at this level in recognition of the broader learning that emerges from doctoral studies.

Throughout your doctoral programme, you will participate in doctoral study weeks. These focus on developing the knowledge and skills that you require in order to successfully train to become an independent researcher and to design and progress your doctoral research project and complete the three READ modules. They also provide a great networking opportunity for you to engage with your fellow doctoral candidates, other research supervisors and the Graduate School team.


Wherever possible, doctoral students are given the opportunity to hone and develop their academic teaching skills within their department, and are supported by staff within their discipline, as well as by staff from the Centre for Academic Practice. Opportunities are also available for students to develop other skills in academia, within research or within industry.
