Health and Social Care - Research, MPhil

Course Description

The School of Health & Social Care welcomes enquiries and applications from those interested in full or part-time study for MPhil or PhD degrees in health, nursing, social work and psychology or counselling.

The Department focuses on applied social science, including sociology, social policy and psychology. We have a large and growing PhD programme. Students' progress is supported by a supervisory team and dedicated programme leader, and monitored by committees within the Department and the university.

Students may wish to undertake a study which falls within the Department's current portfolio of research, which includes: organisation and delivery of health and social care; primary care and public health; education and training of health and social care professionals; learning, development and well-being; sexual health; mental health and well-being; substance misuse; inter-personal violence; brain, action and movement; and counselling and development.

Applicants must identify an area of research that they wish to pursue and submit an outline proposal of approximately 1,500 words with their application form.

In the first two terms applicants are required to take courses in qualitative and quantitative methods as well as critical appraisal of the literature, unless they have recently completed courses in these areas that are of a similar standard. Part-time students are expected to devote a minimum of 12 hours per week to their postgraduate work.
