This report presents the findings of the working group established in 1999 by the UK Council for Graduate Education to explore the issue of research training for post-graduate students in the creative and performing arts and design.
This report is intended as a strategy document, highlighting key trends and challenges in the recruitment and training of international postgraduates, and underlining the need to treat international postgraduates as a separate constituency from international undergraduates.
This report relates to the regulations governing the freedom of candidates registered for a doctoral degree of a European university to incorporate into their thesis published works based upon the results of the approved research programme.
This paper seeks to identify not only the current context within which UK research level education is being developed but also a number of thematic matters which we believe require further consideration by the sector.
This report relates to the award of the degree of PhD to a candidate whose thesis consists entirely or predominantly of refereed and published articles in journals or books which are already in the public domain.
