PhD/Doctorate

Most full-time doctorates in Europe lasts around 3 or 4 years (this will be longer if you study part-time). To do a doctorate, you usually need a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree. Doctorates are ideal for people with a passion for research and discovery. They are especially useful if you want to work in academia, become a specialist in a particular field, or be an industry researcher. Doctorates usually involve a lot of independent study and research, specialised in one particular subject. You may attend some classes, but usually you carry out your own independent research, under the guidance of your supervisor. The aim of a doctorate is to break new ground, to produce new information and ideas or to conduct original research to help advance your subject. You may be expected to produce papers throughout your programme, and to produce a thesis for evaluation. To apply, you usually have to submit a research proposal, outlining what your doctorate will aim to achieve.

As well as these three main study levels, you can also do lots of other higher education qualifications, such as professional diplomas and more.
