Doctorate Studies in the United Kingdom 2021

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Earning an advanced degree, like a Master of Arts, may advance a stalled career or help someone move in a new professional direction. These programs vary in length, but most take two to three years to complete with part-time or full-time course schedules.
