Content

The health and social care sectors are constantly changing in order to provide better treatment and access to care. Improving health and social care services would not be possible without the work of well-trained researchers.

The Health Research Masters degree equips you to conduct high quality, rigorous research. You’ll benefit from our strong emphasis on both theoretical and practical skills and you'll be supported by a multidisciplinary team of experienced researchers.

The course is suitable for a diverse range of people, and our students include qualified nurses, pharmacists and occupational therapists – as well as others with a background in natural science, social science or the third sector. The entire course can also be studied online, giving you the freedom to work towards a Masters around your personal and professional commitments.

You can exit after stage 1 with PgCert Health Research.

You can exit after stage 2 with PgDip Health Research.
