Course Summary

School of Health, Sport and Bioscience (HSB) will push you to the limit - and you’ll be supported all the way by our world-class academic staff. HSB has a well-developed postgraduate research culture, across bioscience, health and sport. Our supportive academic supervisors can help you develop your postgraduate ideas and your research skills at the same time. What’s more, you’ll be working in our modern, multi-million facilities and buildings in our Stratford campuses.

Our research is concentrated into several research groups, including the: Human Motor Performance Group (HMPG); Medicines Research Group (MRG); Infection and Immunity Research Group (IIRG); and the Centre for Disabilities, Sport and Health (CDSH). We also work closely with UEL’s Institute for Health and Human Development (IHHD). Major areas of research within HSB include: bioscience, health promotion, therapeutic and clinical medicine, herbal medicine and plant biotechnology, and sports science.

Research proposals give us a better understanding of the area you want to study for an MPhil, PhD via MPhil or PhD Direct course. You don’t have to follow a predetermined structure when writing your proposal, but it’s a good idea to include a title that describes the aims and scope of your research, and information on how your ideas fit in with the research interests of UEL. Other important elements include: relevant academic literature, how your research will advance knowledge in this area, and a possible methodology. You should also include a timescale for your research.
