Course Summary

Developing and evaluating effective evidence-based mental health services to support people at some of the most challenging times of their lives depends on high quality research. Over the course of your studies, you will develop and enhance transferable skills such as problem solving, project management, and critical thinking that are valued in any professional setting.

As a student at our 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 abroad. As such, you can be confident that your research will inform and be informed by the wider health and social care environment.

Currently students are looking at evidence-based practices in mental health (in particular early intervention services), care co-ordination in forensic mental health care and the influence of service user participation in professional role development.

Entry requirements

Students need a first or upper second degree in a discipline related to their 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. Admissions decisions take into account not only prior academic qualifications, but also factors including the standard of the research synopsis/proposal submitted, performance at interview (if required), intensity of competition for limited places and relevant professional experience (where appropriate).
