Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The UK’s health and social care systems continue to provide high-quality care, however, it is crucial that we explore new technologies and ways of working to ensure the standards of care that we've come to expect are maintained.

The work we do in support of this ethos is underpinned by a culture of connectedness from the students we educate, to the research we carry out and through to our impact on the wider world. Integral throughout all of this is the involvement of patients and care providers in our work, ensuring it remains relevant to the challenges facing our society.

Studying for an MSc by Research in Health and Wellbeing gives you the opportunity to pursue in-depth your own personal or professional research interests in this wide-ranging field, which encompasses such diverse policy areas as health, education, housing, disability, crime, poverty, and the family. This MSc offers an outstanding opportunity to make an original contribution to the development and application of outcome research into real-life issues in healthcare delivery and policy.

Offering flexibility through a wholly research-based mode of study, our MSc by Research in Health and Wellbeing course is perfect for those looking to balance work, life and study commitments

You will develop skills in core research methods and analysis to design and deliver your own research project, supported by a tailor-made programme of supervision and training. This can include developing knowledge and skills in aspects of the use of epidemiology, quantitative and qualitative research and routine data analysis.

As a student at the College of Human and Health Sciences, you will benefit from a dynamic and supportive research environment with many opportunities to make connections across disciplines and develop links with organisations and policymakers both in the UK and abroad. As such, you can be confident that your research will inform and be informed by the wider health and social care environment.

According to the most recent Research Excellence Framework in 2014-2021, over 75% of the research carried out at the college was of international or world-leading quality.

You will be joining a university that was named ‘University of the Year’ and ‘Postgraduate’ runner up in the What Uni Student Choice Awards 2019.
