Strategic Leadership Programme FAQs

Frequently asked questions about the Strategic Leadership Programme.

1. How many cohorts do you run a year?

We plan to deliver two cohorts per year, one in the autumn term and one early in the summer term. Please see here for dates of current cohort we are recruiting for.

2. Where will the residential module be located?

We are currently finalising the location for the residential element, but expect at least one cohort to be delivered in Manchester.

3. Is this programme available internationally?

This is a blended programme delivered through both online (including full days) and an in-person residential element, as such it is not available internationally unless participants can manage the time difference online and attend the residential in person.

4. Can multiple people from the same institution apply?

Yes, but we usually cap this at 3 per institution.

5. Are there any eligibility criteria?

There is an application process that is designed to ensure the participants selected are in suitably senior roles within their institution with strategic or cross-institutional reach.

Participants typically hold roles in their organisations that combine leadership of a particular function or academic area with high-level responsibility for one or more issues of a pan-institutional nature (for example internationalisation, student or staff experience, external collaborations, regional or global partnerships).
