Location

Cambridge Seminars College is located in the heart of Cambridge, with the City centre only a five minute cycle ride or a ten minute walk away from the college.

Cambridge is a small, beautiful city about 50 minutes north of London on the train. It combines the old with the new spectacularly well – you are surrounded by historic and ancient architecture as well as brand new and ultra modern buildings. Students account for about a fifth of the city’s population, so you will be becoming an important part of this diverse community when you come to study here.

Despite it being such a small city, there is a wide selection of entertainment and leisure in Cambridge however you choose to spend your free time. Further information about Cambridge and guides to life in the city can be found at: www.visitcambridge.org.

Cambridge caters for people of all religions and there are facilities and communities for followers of all the major religions including a wide range of Christian churches (Catholic, Anglican, Baptist and Methodist) as well as synagogues, mosques and temples.

With a population of 120,000, Cambridge is a small, safe town, with a low crime rate and everything is within walking distance. More adventurous students may decide to buy or rent a bicycle to get around the city more quickly or to explore the outlying villages.

Pre-Doctoral Programme

Campus Full time 6 months February 2017 United Kingdom Cambridge

This programme has been developed for UK, EU and international students intending to undertake MPhil and/or doctoral studies, whether PhD or DBA, in the English medium. Being accepted for doctoral study by universities throughout the world is increasingly competitive. It is therefore vital that you have a clearly defined and well researched proposal at the very outset of your engagement with an intended university. This programme has been carefully structured to help you do just that! [+]

At Cambridge Seminars College we have over 35 years of experience in preparing students for undergraduate studies in a wide range of business, economics and management subjects. We have sent our students to over 50 universities throughout the UK, many of which are highly ranked. As you can see from the wide range of books shown below, Cambridge Seminars College has teachers who write textbooks for major publishers. This programme has been developed for UK, EU and international students intending to undertake MPhil and/or doctoral studies, whether PhD or DBA, in the English medium. Being accepted for doctoral study by universities throughout the world is increasingly competitive. It is therefore vital that you have a clearly defined and well researched proposal at the very outset of your engagement with an intended university. This programme has been carefully structured to help you do just that! It is also advisable that you can demonstrate to your intended university a strong academic background, if they are to admit you to doctoral studies. This will usually mean that you have attained, in the UK context, an upper second honours classification (or its international equivalent) in your first degree or that you have demonstrated a similar level of achievement in a postgraduate qualification in your chosen subject. As can be seen from the summary diagram, the Pre-Doctoral Programme seeks to strengthen the academic English and doctoral study skills which are required from the very outset as you prepare your research proposal. Being able to conduct an effective literature review in your chosen field is a key element in your choice of research topic, research title and the research questions you will seek to address. Your ability to apply the various techniques for managing and analysing information and data will also play a key role in the design and implementation of your research proposal, as will your having a firm grasp of the research methods available to you, both qualitative and quantitative. This Pre-Doctoral Programme will give you extensive practice and feedback in preparing the actual proposal you will present for an MPhil, PhD or DBA award. Additional English language skills are developed both formally in specified modules and less formally throughout to help you improve whatever initial IELTS (or equivalent) English language score you have attained at the outset of this programme. A minimum of 5.5 IELTS will be required to enter the Pre-Doctoral Preparatory Programme and a minimum of 6.5 IELTS will be required to progress to subsequent studies leading to an MPhil or Doctoral award.
