University of Westminster - Doctoral degree powers granted

August 21, 2008

The authority to award Winchester's own research degrees to doctoral students follows a year-long scrutiny by assessors from the Quality Assurance Agency. Elizabeth Stuart, the pro vice-chancellor who led the application, said: "The achievement confirms Winchester's status as a mature university committed to the generation and transfer of knowledge.

Winchester received university status in 2005, and 105 of its students are currently completing doctorates.
