I recently completed my Ph. NCU offered exactly what I wanted in a school: Over the years, I have read the comments about NCU on here and intentionally decided to wait until graduating to provide my own opinion as someone who successfully completed a doctoral degree.
NCU is good school. You will not be successful in the Ph. The comprehensive exam at the end of your academic courses is not a joke. You must articulate your ability to think and communicate at a doctoral level in order to pass the exam as is expected in any worthwhile school.
The dissertation process is equally as arduous--but for a good reason. You are providing new knowledge to the area of research you chose to conduct your dissertation on.
In the end, I would not want to compromise the quality of my dissertation simply for the sake of obtaining a degree. Likewise, the reputation of the instructors and dissertation committee members are reflected in the quality of a Ph. The teachers or mentors as they are called are all doctorate-level instructors--unlike some of the brick and mortar schools that only require Masters-level degrees.
Some mentors are excellent and others are not that effective just like any other school regardless of prestige. The biggest misconception that many new doctoral students tend to make is that they assume everything should be directed and specified in the smallest detail to them-- that is not the point of post-graduate degrees especially a Ph.
You are expected to begin performing as an independent, self-motivated researcher who has the potential to be considered an expert in a particular field of study by the time you graduate. As such, NCU's Ph. NCU is not a "degree mill" whatsoever. The faculty expect a student to perform to the standards that are established in writing.
This takes practice and it takes dedication over the years you will sacrifice to complete your doctoral degree. It was not easy. It was often very frustrating and I was exhausted weeks and months at a time from the relentless school work; revising of papers, demands of working through every single holiday and weekend without a break, and sacrificing personal time that I could be enjoying with family and friends in order to achieve this goal.
You can never fully prepare yourself for the challenges of a doctoral degree. The future is in online classes-- those who make short-sighted comments about the perceived worthiness of a virtual university need to consider the significant shift in how academic programs are being redesigned for those who grew up in a world of quickly-changing technology.
I highly recommend NCU for those who are capable and willing to fulfill all the obligations necessary for a doctoral degree.Chapter events. Docomomo Belgium.
