    or level 10 equivalent? Or are they all research based?

    There are structured PhDs with a taught component. But the whole idea of studying at level 10 is that you make a unique contribution to the body of knowledge. Which can only be achieved through research.

    There are also professional doctorates in a number of areas including education and business administration which also have a taught component.

    UCC's PhD in Digital Arts & Humanities has a lot of coursework involved, although there is a thesis as well. Probably similar courses in other universities.
