Nope, that's a real doctorate. Medical practitioners are called "doctors" in English as an honorary title, regardless of whether they actually have doctorates. But you don't actually need a doctorate to practice medicine, and many medical practitioners hold only a bachelor-level professional degree.
I know, I was only trying to make a funny and now you've made me look silly.
I notice there are a couple of people with degrees in Physiology. Must be a fantastic degree to do, although I'm not sure of the career prospects outside of teaching and research, if you want to stay in the field.

A research PhD offers massive amounts of experience in research, which is generally the most useful kind of experience if you're planning to be a scientist.
I don't know about a scientist, but my degree, lets face it, is useless. Universities are just pushing you through as fast as possible, you only really start learning once you go for your Post grads or whatever. That is why it is a good idea to get experience in the "real" world before you go on to further study, because you won't actually know anything otherwise Depressing stuff if you are trying to get a degree
Not sure if I belong in this, doing a foundation degree in Electrical Engineering at University Campus Suffolk. Should find out in the next few weeks if work will sponsor me to top it up to an honours degree.
Kiera, how long did it take to get your PHD? I'm working with a guy who came over here to get his PHD but got as far as a masters in China, the masters was 3 years because they had to do lots of design and research for industry. Was it similar in Japan? Sounds a good idea, cheap labour for the electricity supply industry and funded 'work experience' for the students.
Said this in the other thread, but I feel it's better if you list people via Uni, rather than alphabetic by username. I mean, I'm totally at the top if you keep the current way, so I don't mind too much.
Either method of displaying the data has problems - do it by Uni and you potentially lose the progression of a person's academic career (i.e. if they did their Masters or PhD at a different place).
I suppose a solution is a redundant display of the data, that is to say have the entire entry for JV under both Newport and Plymouth. That has the problems inherent with a redundant listing but might be the best solution. I'll look into it after I'm done collecting data.
