PhD (Doctor of Philosophy)

Overview

A PhD is one of the highest internationally recognised academic qualifications that any institution can award. BGU provides opportunities for full or part-time PhD study within its growing community of scholars and healthy research culture. BGU’s emerging success in research, as demonstrated with a small Research Assessment Exercise entry in 2008 and a strong research endorsement for our doctoral-level work from the QAA in 2010, gives us presence within an increasingly research-intensive and competitive sector. Research supervision for the PhD is undertaken at BGU with the degree itself awarded by the University of Leicester.

Key Facts
Entry Requirements

To be considered for a PhD you are expected to hold a minimum of an honours degree and a Masters Award. We will consider applicants without a Masters Award, providing a particularly strong application and proposal have been submitted.

Further Information

Accreditation for Prior Learning 
If you’ve recently completed or studied a particular module as part of a previous qualification, this may mean that you’re not required to undertake a particular module of your BGU course. However this must be agreed in writing and you must apply for this.

It’s important to know when choosing a university to complete a PhD or EdD with that they have an excellent research department, facilities and resources. Here at BGU we are proud of our research background and support offered to students – click here for more information on our staff, current projects and how we can support you in your research endeavours.

A lot of student finance information is available from numerous sources, but it is sometimes confusing and contradictory. That’s why at BGU we try to give you all the information and support we can to help to throughout the process. Our Student Advice team are experts in helping you sorting out the funding arrangements for your studies, offering a range of services to guide you through all aspects of student finance step by step. Click here to find information about fees, loans and support which will help to make the whole process a little easier to understand.
