We are hugely pleased and humbled with the level of interest in the Professional Doctorate in Human Performance and Innovation at UL (4-year, part time). The new 2022 cohort of 20 doctoral candidates is rapidly building, offer of places and expressions of interest are ongoing. We are looking forward with great anticipation to working with the new cohort in September who comprise EU and non-EU candidates and represent business, education, health, industry, physical activity, sport and public and private professional backgrounds.
The programme is designed for experienced professionals who work in different settings to advance high level human and/or sport performance and in addition for those situated in the health and education sectors promoting physical activity behaviour. 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.
Accordingly, and in response to the changing nature and demands of 21st century performance domains, the doctoral programme is designed to be optimally adaptable. 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
The Professional Doctorate in Human Performance and Innovation is now accepting applications for the 2nd cohort of 20 candidates who will begin in September 2022. Prospective candidates should apply on or before June 22nd 2022.
