A welcome to the DoctorateHub, a space that is intended to compliment professional doctoral programmes by creating a cross-disciplinary forum for all aspects of formal and semi-formal doctoral education and training. We believe that the recent proliferation of professional doctorate courses across the globe creates the need for a cross-spanning network that complements these programmes, serving professional doctoral students as a resource base and one-stop Hub to assist them in what is frequently a long and isolated ‘journey’. Unlike undergraduate and post-graduate programmes, doctoral students often feel isolated and consequently believe they must struggle alone. Communication with tutors may not be enough. The DoctorateHub has been designed to address such isolation and provide complementary support to professional doctoral practitioners working towards a doctorate.
Developing a ‘doctoral mindset’ and appropriate research skills can be challenging. Therefore we seek to provide you with helpful guides, interactive exercises, training material and practitioner stories through which you will be able to connect and interact.
