Course Summary

This course develops your leadership and applied research skills in professional practice with our suite of professional doctoral awards. The major challenges confronting society are complex and interdisciplinary, and current solutions to today’s and tomorrow’s intractable problems are not working. This complexity requires a different type of professional; one who is equipped to work in a very different and collaborative way to find new solutions. Our Professional Doctorate Programme will help you to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes required to fulfil this role.

We are bringing together academic experts from across the University to provide you with interdisciplinary learning, teaching and research, thereby enabling you to transcend boundaries and lead applied research that will help you transform lives and tackle complex challenges in unique ways. This programme has been designed to enhance your professional development and enable you to progress as a ‘researching professional’ within your own setting and beyond. To achieve this, principles of professional learning are integrated throughout the learning and teaching, including: A strong emphasis on reflective practice throughout the programme; Opportunities to situate learning within contexts that are familiar to you and actively facilitating you to explore interdisciplinary practice in a broader range of disciplines and contexts; An option for workplace ‘consultancy’ experience that combines research skills with practice-based interventions.
