Summer School

There are two summers schools that you will be required to attend. The first is at the beginning of your studies, and the second is at the beginning of year two of your studies. Summer Schools provide an excellent opportunity for students to undertake face-to-face study, and meet their peers, whilst working towards their qualification.

Time required for study

We recognise that many of our students are in demanding full-time health or social care jobs. The Professional Doctorate in Health is designed to be flexible and supportive in order to accommodate these demands. Students commit approximately 15 hours per-week (on average) to their studies.
