Pre-Doctoral
Programme

This programme has been developed for UK, EU and international students intending to undertake MPhil and/or doctoral studies, whether PhD or DBA, in the English medium. Being accepted for doctoral study by universities throughout the world is increasingly competitive. It is therefore vital that you have a clearly defined and well-researched proposal at the very outset of your engagement with an intended university. This programme has been carefully structured to help you do just that.

It is also advisable that you can demonstrate to your intended university a strong academic background, if they are to admit you to doctoral studies. This will usually mean that you have attained, in the UK context, an upper second honours classification (or its international equivalent) in your first degree or that you have demonstrated a similar level of achievement in a postgraduate qualification in your chosen subject.

The Pre-Doctoral Programme seeks to strengthen the academic English and doctoral study skills which are required from the very outset as you prepare your research proposal. Being able to conduct an effective literature review in your chosen field is a key element in your choice of research topic, research title and the research questions you will seek to address. Your ability to apply the various techniques for managing and analysing information and data will also play a key role in the design and implementation of your research proposal, as will your having a firm grasp of the research methods available to you, both qualitative and quantitative.

This Pre-Doctoral Programme will give you extensive practice and feedback in preparing the actual proposal you will present for an MPhil, PhD or DBA award.

Additional English language skills are developed both formally in specified modules and less formally throughout to help you improve whatever initial IELTS (or equivalent) English language score you have attained at the outset of this programme. A minimum of 5.5 IELTS will be required to enter the Pre-Doctoral Preparatory Programme and a minimum of 6.5 IELTS will be required to progress to subsequent studies leading to an MPhil or Doctoral award.
