Research Students at the Faculty of Health Studies

We have purpose built, excellent facilities for researchers and a vibrant community of enthusiastic staff and doctoral students.

92% of our research was classified as 4* (World Leading) or 3* (Internationally Excellent). In terms of the Impact of our research and the environment in which research is undertaken 100% was classified as world leading or international excellent.

We also have excellent links with service providers in health and social care, voluntary sector organisations and community groups with collaborative work being undertaken at local, regional, national and international levels including the Alzheimers SocietyBradford Institute for Health Research and the Born in Bradford project.

These links are highly beneficial for doctoral students in the school, helping their studies to progress.

We have a thriving service user and carer research group who are enthusiastic about our work and keen to be involved with our research, offering the public patient perspective.

We invite applications from enthusiastic research students wishing to explore an aspect of practice related to our research clusters. You are welcome to contact staff within the school who work within your area of interest to discuss your research ideas before before submitting your application and research proposal (see staff profiles).
