Health and Well-Being

The South West Doctoral Training Partnership Health and Wellbeing pathway enables students to cultivate a range of skills to develop and evaluate interventions and strategies to improve health behaviour. Your work will make a major impact on the social science underpinnings of avoidable health problems, and will build research capacity at the interface of biomedical and social sciences, both within and beyond academia. All students have two supervisors from different disciplinary perspectives on health and wellbeing: the first supervisor from Bristol and the second supervisor from one of the partner institutions (Exeter, Bath or UWE). Your supervisors will convene joint meetings on a regular basis and will attend the annual one-day workshop for all pathway students. Students will normally be registered in the school of their first supervisor. This may not be the school that processes your application.
