Course summary


As an PhD/MPhil researcher at City’s Centre for Mental Health Research, you will be contributing to a body of knowledge and expertise. Making a direct impact on people’s health and well-being.

Our research on Mental Health addresses the complex links between mental and physical ill-health. We cover including some of the biggest healthcare challenges facing society, such as dementia and depression.

We work closely with clinicians, patients, carers and service managers across a range of disciplines to carry out research to improve mental health care and communication for people of all ages in all settings.

Our pioneering approach to involving patients and carers throughout the research process has earned us an international reputation. Bolstered by strong links with government bodies and major health charities.

Study for an MPhil/PhD

Doctoral level study involves independent academic research, supported by supervisors, that makes an original contribution to knowledge within the discipline.

There are two main routes to doctoral-level research degrees (PhD) within the School.

The main approach - MPhil/PhD by major thesis - centres on conducting original research and presenting this in a thesis of around 70,000 words (and no longer than 100,000 words).

An alternative route to doctoral qualification is PhD by publication. This involves the candidate either linking together a coherent body of previously conducted research papers with a critical commentary (PhD by prior publication) or preparing and submitting a series of papers for peer reviewed publication during the period of registration (PhD by prospective publication).
