PhD (by Dissertation) - Health, Psychology & Social Care

This is the conventional route to gaining a PhD, where you are expected to create an original research proposal. An advisory team supports you during your PhD study, providing regular feedback on your work and your progress. Your research concludes with a thesis of approximately 80,000 words in length, which will be examined. You'll be questioned on aspects of this work and you'll have the opportunity to respond constructively in a viva voce exam. Recent thesis topics include: triaging respiratory emergencies; the role of rehabilitation in improving short and long term outcomes for survivors of critical illness and dementia and cancer care. Our research expertise across health and social care includes communication disability, developments in learning, teaching and professional practice, and musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
