The ambulance service I work for were extremely supportive and agreed to fund half of the PhD (the other half coming from the scholarship). This way I was able to dedicate half of my time working on the road as a paramedic, and half my time at University working on my thesis. I tend to do a week on the road, followed by a week at uni and alternate this pattern. Needless to say, I need to have a very tight relationship with our scheduling department. While my PhD is part-time, I am still a full-time employee of the ambulance service. As the PhD is part-time, I’ve got up to 8 years to complete it, as of 2013.
Students applying to a doctoral degree program are required to have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and in many cases a relevant master's degree or graduate-level coursework is encouraged. Applicants typically must take the GRE or GMAT for successful admission. Entrepreneurship degree programs may require professional work experience or evidence of scholarly research related to the field. Admissions to these programs may be competitive, which may include earning a GPA above during undergraduate coursework.
