Studying with us

A group of people sat around a table discussing healthcare research

The School of Healthcare offers a wide variety of postgraduate taught programmes to enhance opportunities for practitioners in the healthcare profession.

When studying with us, you'll benefit from outstanding teaching and dedicated careers support — equipping you for a successful future within Healthcare.

Dissertation options

Within the School of Healthcare, you'll complete a dissertation which requires engagement with one of the following options:

  • an empirical research study
  • a systematic review of literature
  • a practice development project.

Such projects are informed by contemporary issues relating to health care, social care or social work and have a demonstrable benefit for service users and carers. 

Our research-informed learning

A number of broad research themes exist and more is being done to align such themes to our expanding multi-professional postgraduate provision.

As part of a Masters programme, you'll be able to engage with existing research projects  —  ensuring your supervision will be supported by experts within that field.

We have a broad range of enriching Masters courses which will provide the skills for you to innovate, influence and deliver to meet the challenges ahead in modern healthcare.

Lifelong learning

The School is strongly committed to the goal of 'life-long learning' for all our students and has a healthy number of full and part-time PhD students. Postgraduate study is a growth area and the School is interested in supporting students engaging in further research based activities.
