Our faculty’s research encompasses researchers and research students from many health, social care and education backgrounds and who therefore represent a range of academic interests. Research in the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education is located in our two Schools of Nursing & Midwifery and of Education & Social Care.

Our research and associated doctoral studies reflects our successful submissions to the Research Excellence Framework (2013) evaluation which is conducted nationally every few years. It relates to a number of specialist themes.

Health-related research: Workforce, patient/carer experience, stress, ageing, dementia, pain, falls, and childhood obesity.

Social care research: Marginalised communities (adult and young people), models of care, and community engagement.

Education research: Pedagogical research, special educational needs, early childhood.

We invite applications towards study for MPhil or PhD on topics within these broad areas. Established, world-leading academics support the programmes.
