About

Professional doctorates are doctoral-level qualifications, equivalent to traditional PhDs. They are rigorous Public Policy programmes of advanced applied study and research offered at University of Nottingham, specifically designed to meet the needs of practising professionals. 

Overview

This Public Policy course at University of Nottingham provides comprehensive analysis on public sector reforms, including evidence-based policy and practice. It supports creating greater capacity within the public and voluntary sectors to conduct, commission and evaluate research as a contribution to the achievement of public goals. You will be assigned two supervisors who will support and guide you throughout the course.
