A step-by-step route to
a doctorate for
those with significant experience in the
built environment professions.
Days (June 2015)
Hello, and welcome to my website.
I am the programme leader for the built environment professional doctorate at the
University of Salford. This programme provides a structured
part-time route to a doctorate for experienced
property, construction, architectural and housing
Based on my conversations with potential doctoral candidates over the last few years I have prepared the
website to provide
some answers to the questions most often asked – about professional doctorates in general, and about the Salford programme in particular.
I hope you find it informative but please let me
know if you would like any further information about
studying for your doctorate.
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my mobile number:
+44 (0) 7970 39 2008. Alternatively, please come
along to one of our informal drop-in
days during June 2015.

brochure can be downloaded here.

Welcome to the Salford Research Community
At Salford we regard our professional doctorate candidates as research colleagues, as well as students. As soon as you register you become a valued member of a thriving, and highly regarded, international research community. This will provide you with unique opportunities to interact with leading specialists in the discipline
worldwide, and to play an active part in the development of knowledge within the field. In the process you will discover new ways of working, writing and thinking, as well as making many new friends along the way.
All our professional doctorate candidates pursue their studies within the University’s prestigious
Research Group. The Group - the largest in the UK - has an enviable reputation worldwide, and has consistently been rated as the best centre for built environment research in successive UK government research assessment exercises.
Significant numbers of our current candidates
have already presented papers at international
research conferences, including the annual RICS
COBRA Conference which takes place every
September in a
variety of locations
around the world. And in due course all
candidates will have the opportunity to demonstrate
real leadership in their subject by publishing the findings of their research within some of the most reputable international peer-reviewed research journals within the field.
