Professional Doctorate in Elite Performance - MProf

About This Professional Doctorate

Course Description

The Professional Masters in Elite Performance (MProf) is an exciting and original initiative, capable of providing a high level, vocationally focussed 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.

The MProf provides an opportunity for those working in elite performance to complete a programme of study focused on career-based needs and aspirations.


The approaches taken in the Programme reflect current thinking on this type of award.

Accordingly, the vast majority of student learning is achieved through the use of guided reading, with subsequent supported synthesis and discussion through formal (eg, with the personal tutor) and informal (eg, with peers) methods.

Learning will also be supported with the use of WebCT, and supplemented by a variety of other methods including small group discussion, presentations and data collection/analysis.

Data set analysis reports; academic reports and case studies; a personal development plan; a learning diary, and; the MProf dissertation.


At the end of the programme, students will be able to demonstrate:

  1. An ability to critically analyse and synthesise the complexities associated with contemporary professional and disciplinary issues, the linkages between them and their application to performance contexts
  2. An ability to design and implement an appropriate programme of applied research
  3. An ability to present research in a form relevant to their professional context
