The postgraduate research team within the School of Health and Social Care are committed to providing the best possible experience. Students are able to work alongside experienced academics who can help guide them through the research process and offer support on personal and professional development in order to maximise career opportunities on graduation.
Students are able to meet with and discuss their project with other research students both within the School and across the University. There are regular opportunities to attend research seminars hosted by the research groups within the School and wider College. The School also has close ties with the University’s central Doctoral School, which provides a wealth of training programmes for all research students and the chance to present work at the annual research showcase.
