About International Development with Integrated Study at University of Birmingham

The PhD with Integrated Study has been developed to provide a new route to the internationally respected British PhD degree by incorporating subject knowledge, research training and the development of transferable skills. While the traditional PhD programme requires students to engage entirely in research training, culminating in the production of a thesis, the PhD with Integrated Study enables you to gain added value from taught, subject-based modules.

The taught modules allow students to broaden, as well as deepen, their subject knowledge at the same time as undertaking their own research and developing a set of transferable professional skills in preparation for careers as professional educators and researchers, and for senior positions in public and private sector organisations.

The programme consists of taught modules and a thesis. Taught modules include core skills and subject specific modules, and the thesis is 80,000 words. Research activity will begin in year one and will continue alongside taught modules in years two and possibly three. In year four, students will focus entirely on their research, culminating in the production of the thesis. Students will be expected to take assessed modules in basic and specialist research methods.
