International Association of Practice Doctorate (IAPD)

Middlesex contact: Professor Carol Costley, Chair

The International Association of Practice Doctorates influences opinion and practice through its successful seminars and workshops. IAPD’s aims are to make connections between higher education institutions, professional organisations, professional practice and research activity; to undertake support and staff development for those engaged in doctoral education; and to provide a voice for professional and practice-based doctoral research at national and international levels. We have been leading the group and working in collaboration with the UK Council for Graduate Education (UKCGE).
