Aligned with Leeds Beckett University's mission to use our knowledge and resources to make a positive and decisive difference to people, communities and organisations, we are proud to announce the launch of the Carnegie School of Sport's Doctor of Professional Practice in Sport (DProf Sport).
The DProf Sport integrates part-time doctoral level study with continuing professional practice. It is therefore ideal for those who wish to study at doctoral level whilst maintaining their professional commitments. The programme aims to support experienced professionals working within sport to develop evidence-led solutions to their 'real world' workplace problems and gain a formal qualification at the same time.
On the DProf Sport professionals will work with leading academics to undertake in-depth study of some of the complex issues facing sport today. The acquired knowledge and understanding gained through the research journey can then be integrated directly into the organisations and systems in which you work.
The DProf Sport entails the successful completion of a structured and tailored learning programme - incorporating a taught and research component. This period of learning will culminate in an original contribution to your field of study. This contribution will be assessed by the submission of a research thesis, portfolio, artefact or other form of accessible output produced by professional doctorate candidates.
Delivered part-time, the DProf Sport programme allows you the opportunity to combine your current job role with your drive to advance theory and practice and gain doctoral-level recognition within your specific area of study.
The DProf Sport is only available part-time with the fees of £3,500 per annum for 4 years followed by a fifth year writing up fee of £500 if required. The application deadline for a February 2020 start is 30 September 2019.
