International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies

About us

As a world-class centre for coaching and mentoring, we have a vision of robust, effective, professional coaching and mentoring practice making a real difference to the lives people lead.

Our mission is to expand the knowledge base of coaching and mentoring by promoting cutting-edge research and teaching.

We demonstrate these principles by producing both high-quality research and publications and leading professional development at master's and doctoral level. The same focus underpins our consultancy and evaluation of programmes.

The International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies supports diversity and innovation in research.

We believe that excellence in research underpins the effectiveness of all our practice, teaching and consultancy.  All members of the team are active researchers producing highly regarded outputs across the spectrum of coaching and mentoring questions and contexts.

We host collaborations with associates from across the University’s schools and departments, building knowledge across disciplines. Our faculty and students research internationally in areas such as social change, health and wellbeing, diversity, education, leadership and global business.

Our network is constantly growing as we maintain strong links with our alumni. We actively develop our relationships with organisations in both public and private sectors to explore research and its application in coaching and mentoring.

Study opportunities

Oxford Brookes is well known for its range of high-quality postgraduate programmes for the development of coaches and mentors at master's level 7 and at doctoral level 8.

Our long established MA in Coaching and Mentoring Practice offers the opportunity to gain a master's degree part-time over 2 to 5 years. It has a flexible format and encompasses a shorter Postgraduate Certificate (6 months) and Postgraduate Diploma (15 months).

The Doctor of Coaching and Mentoring Programme (DCM) is unique in the world. Each year, 8 experienced coaches and mentors are challenged to augment their existing expertise and push the boundaries of knowledge and understanding so that they may operate at the highest level. We also offer ILM accredited qualifications at level 5 and 7 and an advanced study programme in coaching supervision.
