Research degrees in health

We offer a wide range of opportunities to undertake research degrees in health and related disciplines, whether that be one of our two Professional Doctorates, the Doctorate in Public Health and Doctorate in Health and Social Care, or via one of our current 13 PhD routes.

With the most recent UK assessment of research quality (REF 2021) reporting that over 82% of the research conducted in the School of Health and Social Work, and associated Research Centres, was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent, we pride ourselves in supporting our Post Graduate Research students to develop themselves and their research skills while planning and delivering their own original doctoral-level research. Students are supported via the supervision and guidance of two or more academic members of staff as supervisors; and further supported by the University’s Researcher Development Programme, together with bespoke workshops and sessions delivered online and in our Departmental Research Hub.
