Health and Well-Being

This collaborative, interdisciplinary pathway brings together key academics within the South West Doctoral Training Partnership whose research and teaching strengths are in the broad area of health and wellbeing - in particular, lifestyle behaviours and public health. Students on this pathway acquire a range of skills to develop and evaluate interventions and strategies to improve health behaviour. Your work will make a major impact on our understanding of the social science that underpins avoidable health problems, and will build research capacity at the interface of biomedical and social sciences, both within and beyond academia.

Course modules

There are four core units and a choice of optional units, which can be taken at Bristol, UWE, Bath or Exeter. Self-funded students will be required to pay for any required travel to other institutions for optional units, while ESRC-funded students may choose to use their research training support grant fund. Over the summer you will complete a research-based dissertation of up to 15,000 words, individually supervised by a member of staff from one of the centres in the school. Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MRes in Health and Wellbeing. (http://www.bris.ac.uk/unit-programme-catalogue/RouteStructure.jsa?byCoho...)

The Faculty of Social Sciences and Law has an allocation of 1+3 ESRC scholarships for this interdisciplinary pathway.
