Develop in-depth knowledge and skills of research methods. Prepare yourself for an academic or professional career with a focus on health and wellbeing.

On completion of this course, you will:

  • understand the social science underpinning the development of effective interventions, strategies, and policies aimed at sustainable improvements in health and wellbeing, and reducing physical and psychological health inequalities
  • have an interdisciplinary understanding of the links between social, biological and environmental factors and individual health behaviours, choices, and outcomes
  • understand contemporary issues related to modifiable disease risk behaviours, and the determinants and correlates of these lifestyle behaviours across the lifespan
  • understand the interdisciplinary skills and processes required to translate scientific research into practical health and well-being applications

Working under the supervision of our academic staff, you will be able to pursue a line of study and research that is relevant to your own interests. You will be encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and identify and investigate your own original research questions.

South West Doctoral Training Partnership

This MRes is recognised by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), specifically, as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). It can be taken as a course in its own right or if you hold an SWDTP studentship you can take the 1+3 (MRes + PhD) pathway.

If you wish to be considered for a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, then you must apply for your preferred PhD route and not the stand alone MRes. You should follow our how to apply and funding guidelines.

For those holding a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, progression from the MRes to the MPhil or PhD stage is dependent on an acceptable level of achievement.

Graduate prospects

This course will prepare you for a career as professional researcher in either an academic or non-academic environment, by developing your core research skills.
