A large number of expressions of interest have been received regarding the new Professional Doctorate in Human Performance & Innovation at the University of Limerick (4 years, part-time). Offers of places are progressing and the new cohort of doctoral candidates who will begin in September 2021 is emerging. We are looking forward with great anticipation to working with these professionals.

The programme is focused on driving innovation within their specific fields of expertise. Content will be customised to support the candidate in developing the skills and knowledge bases necessary to drive the evolution, development, validation and implementation of targeted innovations. Doctoral candidates will be supported throughout the process by a team of internationally recognised academics and experienced practitioners.

The programme is a direct response to an evident and growing need for professionals who are both academically astute and capable of demonstrating high-level critical thinking within practical contexts. As such, this landmark programme offers an alternative route to doctoral qualification by recognising the need to create agile and individually tailored programmes of study moulded around the working lives of busy professionals operating in high-pressure environments.

To this end, a menu of e-learning options ensures that the candidate can continue to learn and innovate, regardless of location and/or shifting life demands.
