Course content

The Master of Research (MRes) in Health and Wellbeing examines avoidable health problems associated with poor lifestyles and socio-economic inequalities.

On completion of this programme, students will be able to:

  • understand the social science underpinning the development of effective interventions, strategies, and policies aimed at (i) sustainable improvements in health and well-being and (ii) reducing physical and psychological health inequalities.
  • have an interdisciplinary understanding of the links between social, biological and environmental factors and individual health behaviours, choices, and outcomes.
  • understand contemporary issues related to modifiable disease risk behaviours, and the determinants and correlates of these lifestyle behaviours across the lifespan.
  • understand the interdisciplinary skills and processes required to translate scientific research into practical health and well-being applications.


The programme aims to equip students for careers as professional researchers in either academic or non-academic environments, by developing core research skills. Students will be encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and to identify and investigate their own original research questions.
