About the University

Azim Premji University, Bengaluru was established in 2010 as a not- for-profit University committed to the social purpose of contributing to a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. All our educational programmes consciously nurture and reflect this vision of the University. Azim Premji University, Bhopal is expected to commence operations in January 2023.


About the Course:

Azim Premji University’s Postgraduate Diploma in Research for Social Action aims to enhance the capacity of the social sector in doing research and analysis with the purpose of advancing its use in planning, communication, mobilisation, and advocacy. 

While the social sector makes significant contributions to processes of social change, it is equally necessary to build adequate capacities in the sector to leverage the power of research in forwarding and deepening the possibilities of social action. 


The Research for Social Action programme, therefore, aims to adapt research to the everyday needs of the social sector rather than for academic outcomes, making it useful to social organisations in planning and meeting their mandates.

The programme will help participants to:

  • Undertake practical hands-on work to appreciate the importance of research for social action.
  • Deepen skills of research design, data collection, and analysis relevant to organisations and communities.
  • Develop abilities to leverage such knowledge generated for appropriate social actions.

Who should join

Early to mid-career professionals with 2 – 10 years of work experience from social sector organisations, social movements, thematic action networks, activist groups, and development media. 

The programme is not open to those working outside the social sector. 

Participants must have a Bachelor’s degree in any discipline, and have a working knowledge of English.
