Course Summary

Early years are critical in forming the behaviours that will influence our lifelong health and well-being. Rapid social and technological changes mean we now have to think differently about how we create a positive environment in which children and young people can develop. Our particular research expertise falls into four broad categories: Health and Welfare, Child and Youth Identity, Child Development, and Health Psychology.

As a student at the College of Human and Health Sciences, you will benefit from a dynamic and supportive research environment with many opportunities to make connections across disciplines and develop links with organisations and policy makers both in the UK and globally. As such, you can be confident that your research will inform and be informed by the wider health and social care environment.

The most recent UK-wide assessment of the quality of research in HEI’s (the Research Assessment Exercise 2008), revealed that 70% of the research carried out by the College was of international or world-leading quality.

Entry requirements

Students need a first or upper second degree in a discipline related to the proposed research project, or a relevant, approved postgraduate qualification. In some cases, there may be opportunities for MPhil students to continue their studies as a PhD student. We welcome applications from around the world and look for evidence of previous study that is equivalent to the entry requirements stated above. Admissions decisions take into account not only prior academic qualifications, but also factors including the standard of the research synopsis/proposal submitted by the applicant, their performance at interview (if required), intensity of competition for limited places and relevant professional experience (where appropriate).
