Program Description

Doctor of Philosophy

Amity University in London

In collaboration with the University of Bolton, Amity offers doctoral programmes for research in business management and information technology.

As a doctoral student, you are expected to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in your chosen academic field. It is a challenging pursuit but a rewarding one, and succesful research serves to help the work of an international community of fellow researchers and professionals.

Students undertake training in research methods, participate in research seminars and design and implement their own research to enable them to generate significant new knowledge.

In applying for doctoral study, applicants are required to submit a detailed research proposal, setting out the general area of research, the intended contribution to the field of study, an indication of the research methods to be followed, and a full bibliography. Applications are accepted on the strength of the research proposal, as well as an applicant's motivation and prior academic attainment as the main factors leading to confidence in their chances of completion.

The degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is awarded in recognition of independent research conducted within a supervised programme of study, completed within the allocated time and judged to constitute an original contribution to learning. The student must demonstrate the ability to relate the research results to the general body of knowledge of the subject. Assessment is based upon the final thesis and performance in a 'viva voce' oral examination.
