Course content

The Professional Doctorate in Elite Performance (D.Prof) is an exciting and original initiative, capable of providing a high level, vocationally focused award to a broad range of professionals, including, but not limited to, coaches (in sport and business), scientists in support roles, medical/paramedical practitioners, military and other structured service providers, and all those involved in the performing arts. Offering an equivalent to PhD level, the D.Prof provides an opportunity for those working in elite performance to complete a programme of study focused on individual needs.
