Program Description

Doctor of Coaching and Mentoring (September Start)

Oxford Brookes University, Business School

Doctor of Coaching and Mentoring (DCM)- September 2016

This course is run by the Business School

The Doctor of Coaching and Mentoring (DCM) fosters excellence in professional practice by developing the capabilities needed to become a leader in the field. You will be challenged to augment your existing expertise and to push the boundaries of your knowledge, in order to operate at the highest level, be confident in providing facilitation and consultancy, and be competent in researching the field.

The programme is part-time and is aimed at experienced professionals seeking to extend their knowledge and understanding of coaching and mentoring. It has been designed to develop skills and confidence in providing facilitation and consultancy, as well as competence in research and evaluation. The programme integrates professional expertise and scholarly inquiry, culminating in doctoral research training and the design of original empirical research leading to completion of a doctoral thesis.

Why choose this course?

The Doctor of Coaching and Mentoring is the only one of its type in the UK. Key features are:

  • Individual academic support from a team of expert researchers in the field. Staff have specific research interests and expertise in coaching and mentoring or related fields and visiting specialists provide further expert input. Assessment is through coursework assignments and a doctoral thesis, which is examined by traditional viva voce.
  • As a professional doctorate the programme is designed for experienced coaches or mentors seeking to deepen their knowledge and demonstrate commitment to the field. You will join a small, well-motivated group of like-minded students who will share your research journey.
  • The programme provides training in both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and most importantly provides the support and opportunity to become an autonomous, published researcher. In this way you gain deeper, more critical insights into professional practices and concerns.
  • Studies are facilitated by monthly workshops in Oxford, which continue throughout the duration of the doctorate. The programme is part-time (5 years including study at master's level, or 3 years if you enter with credit from an existing master's). There are also online workshops and discussions which augment face-to-face workshops.
  • Applicants would normally be expected to have a good honours degree, plus at least three years’ experience in a related field. There is a 10% discount on the fee for alumni.
  • This course is only available for UK and EU Students.
