Research report: Promoting the UK doctorate: challenges and opportunities

The publication of this report coincides with news that the government is expected to announce plans to develop a comprehensive policy for postgraduate study – encompassing both taught and research Masters as well as studies at doctorate level – as part of the forthcoming higher education framework. This report, together with Universities UK’s previous study, Taught postgraduate students: market trends and opportunities, published earlier in 2009, is intended to inform and guide the debate.
