Post-doctoral certificate，Oxford University
[Research of Business Psychology]
With the accelerated development of economic globalization, China's psychological market has also experienced a leap growth. How to stand out from the crowd of psychology professionals? How to break through your own professional bottleneck and achieve new academic achievements? These become the imminent problems that we have to face and think carefully. It is our goal to connect with the international psychology academia, get to know more world-class masters in psychology and widen our international perspective. Chinese Psychology professionals must be proficient in frontier international academic research and the ability to develop the latest technology in order to take a place in the international competition. At the same time, the innovation of professional academic ability and the international connection of psychology field are also the indispensable "development tool" for psychology professionals.
Based on the above, the University of Oxford, one of the best university in the world, has launched the "Oxford Postdoctoral Programme: Research in Business Psychology" programme.
The progamme is a collaboration between the University of Oxford and the International Psychology and Management College (IPMC). All studies and research are conducted directly by the University of Oxford.

The programme lasts 1-2 years, with two sessions at Oxford University. During the intensive study, you may share the knowledge with academic leaders and have a face-to-face talk with professors at Oxford University. Upon the completion of the first stage study, the university of Oxford will issue a certificate of study and be eligible for the second stage study. Upon the completion of the second stage study , thesis and defense are both approved, a postdoctoral qualification certificate will be issued directly by Oxford University which was also certified by the Chinese Embassy in the UK. After completion, you will be an Oxford Alumnus, a lifetime alumnus of The University of Oxford. At the same time, It is extremely valuable to receive the highest honor and gain a global social network.
