Our research informed learning

A number of broad research themes exist and more is being done to align such themes to our expanding multi-professional postgraduate provision. As part of a Masters programme for example, students will be able to engage with existing research projects therefore ensuring that the supervision of student dissertations will be supported by experts within that field. See our research themes here.
We have a broad range of fully funded Masters programmes which will provide the skills for you to innovate, influence and deliver to meet the challenges ahead in modern healthcare.

Dissertation options

The School of Healthcare ensures that students undertaking a Masters programme complete a dissertation which requires engagement with one of the following options: an empirical research study, a systematic review of the literature or a practice development project. Such projects are informed by contemporary issues relating to health care, social care or social work and have a demonstrable benefit for service users and / or carers. 

Life long learning

The School is strongly committed to the goal of 'life-long learning' for all our students and has a healthy number of full and part-time PhD students. Postgraduate study is a growth area and the School is interested in supporting students engaging in further research based activities.
