Course content

This course provides the in-depth skills required to understand and/or carry out research in healthcare. We offer an interdisciplinary learning environment in partnership with the university’s Economic and Social Research Council funded Doctoral Training Partnership. This is a collaborative venture between the universities of Nottingham, Birmingham, Warwick, Leicester, Loughborough, and Aston.

You'll be taught by academics from politics, the social sciences and health, studying alongside research methods students in other schools. As healthcare is a multi-disciplinary practice, exposure to learning opportunities outside healthcare both broadens and deepens your learning experience.

We foster a close-knit, highly motivated, and supportive study environment. It is ideal for those working in healthcare or preparing for PhD doctoral-level studies. The knowledge and experience you'll develop will be ideally placed for you to pursue an academic or clinical academic career in healthcare research.
