Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). The Research in Health Professions Education (RiHPE) programme at Swansea is comprised of two supported research degrees, which give candidates full training in research methods and then the opportunity to complete a short research project (M.Res) or to conduct detailed doctorate-level research (D.Prof). Candidates will normally be undertaking research in their place of practice, on topics that are directly relevant to their roles as educators and healthcare professionals. All candidates will be given full face-to-face training on the theory, planning and practise of research before undertaking their research dissertation. The programme is suitable for anyone who wishes to undertake rigorous, practise-focused research into the education of health professionals.
