Course content

We are a leader in the rapidly growing area of coaching and mentoring. This doctorate is cross-disciplinary: as well as focusing on professional development through reflective practice, it also considers the pivotal adult development, organisational and psychological dimensions of coaching and mentoring. The programme comprises taught components, preparation for research at doctoral level and an extended thesis. This doctoral course is designed to be undertaken on a part-time basis over five years (potentially three if you have relevant masters qualifications already) and is delivered through a series of monthly one-day seminars held in Oxford.
