You will shape your own experience of the Professional Education PhD. By concentrating on one element of higher education through in-depth research, you will produce a major body of work and position yourself as an expert.
City’s Learning Enhancement and Development (LEaD) is a central service and an academic department with a research-active team. It will help you create and realise the best possible research programme.
Our research-active team plays a key role in developing the educational culture here. The design of your PhD will be a collaboration between us and you. We are flexible and creative, offering professional development opportunities to support educational practice. This enables you to achieve your maximum potential.
PhD by Prospective Publication
This route requires you to conduct an empirical research project or a series of related projects in a similar manner to the work normally conducted for PhD presented by major thesis.
