Health

With a wide range of staff specialities in health, the team is able to supervise across a broad range of topics. Particular strengths lie in quality of life, whole person assessment, the role of spirituality in recovery and the illness journey and palliative care. We offer effective supervision for cross-disciplinary projects linking to management, education and social care. Research areas include: quality of life; whole person assessment; the role of spirituality in recovery and the illness journey and palliative care; there may also be effective supervision for cross-disciplinary projects that link to management, education and social care; the Institute provides a stimulating and supportive environment with a blend of extensive professional expertise in healthcare environments ranging from primary care to public policy; as a research degree candidate, students are supported by a supervisory team with expertise in their subject or research approach; a research degree opens the door to work in full-time research, work in health care practice and administration and, if the student is a practitioner, to a greater understanding of the student's professional practice.

Entry requirements

To join the PhD programme directly, students normally need a UK Master's, or an equivalent qualification, in a subject area relevant to the proposed research topic; to join the MRes programme, students need an UK Bachelor's of Upper 2nd Class or above, or an equivalent qualification; on successful completion of the MRes (approximately 12 months full-time), students can normally move on to the PhD programme; however, the University considers applications from candidates from different backgrounds who demonstrate appropriate research experience and achievement.
