Course summary

This PhD course is designed to develop the research and critical-thinking skills that can benefit you in your future career. Researchers and Academics in the School of Health and Social Care have extensive practical experience and professional links across the health and social care sectors. The School maintains close industry links to ensure that teaching is informed by the latest developments in practice and policy. As a researcher in the School, you have the opportunity to take part in a structured programme of training designed to develop the research and critical-thinking skills that can benefit you in your future career. You will be supported by an interdisciplinary team of supervisors made up of experienced academics and practitioners from across the College of Social Science. A PhD is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic to a group of academics. You are also expected to demonstrate how your research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding. Career and Personal Development: Postgraduate research can be seen as an apprenticeship in academia and an important qualification for academic research and teaching. Graduates may progress on to further study or to careers in health and social care-related industries.
