About

The South West Doctoral Training Partnership Health and Wellbeing pathway from University of Bristol enables students to cultivate a range of skills to develop and evaluate interventions and strategies to improve health behaviour. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

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.

Careers

The Health and Wellbeing programe from University of Bristol  offers useful preparation for a number of careers. Our students often go on to employment in areas of government policy and health promotion at local, national and international level. Others have continued to academic careers, taking up post-doctoral positions and research associate positions in UK and international universities.

The programme establishes both a sound research training base and an understanding of practical applications, which prepares our students for different types of employment, including research, policy and intervention implementation.

Programme Structure

Research groups

  • The pathway integrates the study of the interaction between three important lifestyle behaviours (nutrition, physical activity and substance use ie smoking and alcohol consumption), their impact on public health and risks for chronic diseases.
