Teaching and learning

Teaching will be based on individual learner needs. You will develop a bespoke training plan with your supervisor at the start of the programme. Teaching will be accessible from the Doctoral Academy training programme, MRes Health and Social Care or University of Manchester Worldwide (UMW). The teaching is designed so as to enable you to balance study alongside existing workplace demands; with the majority of the MRes and UMW content delivered online.

Teaching aims to provide grounding in embedding advanced research methods in applied clinical practice. Significant independent study is expected at doctoral level. All teaching is delivered by experienced researchers and academics at the University of Manchester. All supervisors are currently practicing in forensic mental health and/or active researchers. This will enhance your learning by offering multidisciplinary applied research and professional experience.
