Practitioner Doctorate in Sustainability at the Centre for Environment and Sustainability

The Practitioner Doctorate in Sustainability programme at the Centre for Environment and Sustainability gives its multi-disciplinary Doctoral research students a unique opportunity to develop and apply the latest thinking in sustainability research through specialist partnerships between outside organisations and the University of Surrey.

We aim to equip the next generation of professionals with the skills and experience to advance sustainability practice in business, government and civil society. The programme supports talented individuals and their organisations to be the sustainability innovators in their chosen fields. Building on over 25 years’ experience of applied research with leading industry partners, the PDS delivers outstanding practical and academic impact in sustainability research.

PDS students benefit from an intensive training programme including MSc modules in sustainability, academic writing, transferable skills and personal development. Students conduct their research in sustainability by being embedded in a Partnering Organisation (PO) therefore gaining valuable work experience alongside their research projects. All projects also benefit from 2 academic and 1 industry supervisor, the support of the programme team and a cohort of over 16 students at various phases of their projects.
