Course summary

The School of Health Sciences is committed to being one of the leading centres of healthcare scholarship in the UK, with an excellent reputation for teaching and research excellence.

Research overview

We welcome all applications that align with the research interests of our staff and research groups.

We encourage applications from enthusiastic, talented and highly motivated individuals with a passion for research and for using research to make a difference.

A Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree is the highest academic degree anyone can study, requiring extended study and intense intellectual effort.

To earn a PhD, students must accomplish three things:

  • Master a specific subject completely
  • Extend the body of knowledge about that subject
  • Become a successful independent researcher

Research facilities

All research students have access to outstanding facilities, with an exceptional ICT and Learning Resource Centre, personal workstations with computers for full-time MPhil/PhD students and a dedicated drop-in work centre for part-time students.

Flexible study options

Fitting study into a busy professional life isn't easy, which is why we offer flexible part-time courses with a range of study options. As well as face-to-face interactions, contact with students can be maintained via email, video-conferencing, telephone and post. In addition, the library's electronic facilities can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

Careers

Recent graduates have gone on to work for NHS trusts (such as clinical specialists, advanced practitioners, modern matrons), universities (such as lecturers and senior academics, lecturer practitioners, researchers) and in private practice.
