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.
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.
