Research into Professional Doctorates
CRAC/Vitae is currently undertaking research for HEFCE to understand the current landscape of Professional Doctorate programmes in English HEIs. This includes a survey of institutions to collect strategic views and some programme-level data about this rapidly-evolving aspect of doctoral provision.
The survey has been distributed to a single contact in HEIs in England, generally the PVC-Research (unless a Graduate School leader or other staff member has been nominated). Should you wish to know to whom it was sent in your institution, in order to encourage collation of the information and submission of a response, please contact project leader Robin Mellors-Bourne.
In-depth research is also being carried out in a sample of institutions, now being contacted.
