Study With Us

Postgraduate Research

We welcome applications for postgraduate research, such as a PhD or Masters by Research, in one of our areas of expertise.

Areas of expertise include

  • Health and well-being of people with learning disabilities particularly promoting access to healthcare
  • Learning disability nursing
  • Care at the end of life   
  • Active Support
  • Delivering health and social care in the context of a pandemic

You can study full or part time, on campus or remotely. If you're a professional with an existing body of research, a PhD by Portfolio could be the route for you.

We also offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare courses, including short courses.

The recruitment of exceptional postgraduate research students from the UK and around the world is central to our research philosophy. Students are active across the range of research areas and are funded from a range of sources (for example: self funded, NHS, industry). Our research students have access to state-of-the-art facilities; have dedicated office space and are encouraged to present their work at national and international conferences.

Postgraduate researchers are assigned a supervisory team who have the expertise and experience to support them in their studies. Supervisors will help you to shape your doctoral research project, advise you on creating networks and establishing your career.

You can find our tuition fees for postgraduate research here and more information on our Graduate School site. When you are ready to submit an application, this is how you do it.
