There are two possible modes of study towards obtaining a PhD degree of The University of Sheffield through the Doctoral Programme that SEERC supports:

A) Full Time programme: The duration is 3 years (normally) and it requires full-time commitment on the part of the PhD student. 

B) Part Time programme: The duration is 6 to 8 years (normally). To be eligible for a part-time PhD the candidate should be able to prove significant experience in their selected field. In this case, the PhD student has the obligation of a minimum of one visit annually for supervision purposes (All other communication with supervisors occurs via e-mail, telephone and other electronic means)

Part of the PhD programme involves the Doctoral Development Programme (DDP). The DDP concerns both Full Time and Part Time Students. Its main target is to enhance and broad the range of skills of the PhD candidates. Further information on the DDP can be found at the following link: http://www.shef.ac.uk/ris/pgr/ddpportal
