PhD with Practice
The PhD at Ulster University can take the form of either a standard thesis-based PhD or it can incorporate an element of practice.
The University has developed additional guidance on practice based PhDs at this University which must be read in conjunction with the general regulations for PhD and the Guidelines for PhD submissions involving practice.
PhD by Papers Format
The presentation of thesis by papers format may be suggested by supervisors when it is considered that chapters from a dissertation may be suitable for publication as papers in international journals, with little modification.
Framework for Distance Research Study
Our PhD programme may also be undertaken by 'distance' where part time PhD Researchers who are not based in the UK may wish to remain in their home country and guidelines for this approach have been developed to support candidates.
