Applicants for the PhD programme would normally have, or be studying for a Master’s degree, while our MPhil programme requires a first or upper second degree in a discipline related to the proposed research project, or a relevant, approved postgraduate qualification.
If English is not your first language you will need an acceptable pass in an approved English Language qualification to make sure you get the full benefit from studying at Swansea. We consider a wide range of qualifications, including the Swansea University English Test, the British Council IELTS test (with a score of at least 6.5 in each component).
Months of entry

Committed to translating research from the ‘bench to the bedside’, our nursing research addresses the full range of issues across this discipline such as professional working and patient care, the development of new treatments and interventions, and patient and carer experiences. Studying for a PhD or MPhil is a truly challenging and deeply rewarding experience, and Swansea University provides an excellent environment in which to pursue your research studies.
The latest topics being explored by our students include emotion work experiences of children nurses whilst caring for life-limiting conditions, and nursing students care towards obese patients.
