Course contentThese programmes are linked with the broad areas of expertise and interest within the Centre for Health-Related Research (CHeRR) and with the specific research interests of staff members within the School.
CHeRR research is organised into three broad themes: Language and cultural awareness in health and social care; Knowledge translation and utilisation; Long term conditions across the lifespan. These themes are underpinned by two complementary methodological approaches - trials and economic evaluation, and qualitative and patient-centred designs. Other areas of expertise include: health education, health promotion, health care professional education, and alternative therapies.
Fees and fundingWhere appropriate, applicants are encouraged to work with the Centre for Health-Related Research researchers and apply to PhD studentship and fellowship competitions. Applicants may also self-fund.
Where possible, we are also keen to enable students to complete PhDs as part of currently funded research projects.
