Professional doctorates at St Mary's University

We offer the opportunity to study for an MPhil, PhD or a Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD), working on your research project alongside highly experienced researchers.

We have a thriving PhD programme with over 150 students, all supported by a supervisory team of active researchers in the student’s subject area. We have students studying for PhDs in areas such as applied science, theology, sport, health, arts and humanities, social sciences, business and education.

In addition, a number of our students are working in important cross-disciplinary fields such as the relationship between theology and public policy and the provision of health services in prisons.
