The Changing Face of Doctoral Studies

Dr Martyn Polkinghorne made his first contribution to the FLIE@BU LinkedIn Page with an article on The Changing Face of Doctoral Studies.

The number of doctoral students in the UK, and the variety of types of doctorates, have grown enormously.

 The complete article is available on LinkedIn.
