Course summary

Within our multidisciplinary School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences, we offer research supervision in a broad range of fields.

As a research student at Essex, you’ll work at the heart of our internationally acknowledged and well-connected research community. Our School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences offers an environment with an excellent reputation for research and teaching. A unique feature of our School is that many of our staff work with local National Health Service (NHS) Trusts and other local health agencies, which enhances our grasp of the contemporary links between academic research, the major issues of the day and practice.

Assessment

The aim of undertaking your PhD is to train as an independent researcher who can critically assess other research work and have a comprehensive knowledge of at least one area. Our PhD programme is usually three to four years duration and all our students are initially registered as MPhil/PhD students, then transferred to the PhD in the first half of their second year of study if they have made satisfactory progress. In your second and third years, you work towards your PhD.

Your future

We currently have graduates working in both clinical and management positions in local trusts, hospitals and care organisations, as well as in local and county councils.
