The Structured PhD in Education and Health Sciences is a novel PhD that will allow the student to complete a PhD within 4 years full-time. For full-time doctoral students the taught components are normally completed within the first two years. There is a part-time option available whereby the taught components are completed within the first three years and a longer duration permitted for the student to complete the research element of the PhD usually an additional two years.
The research project will be sited within one of the Faculty's six Departments, but the taught elements will be shared across the Faculty, maximising learning opportunities for the students. It will promote a sharing of expertise and experience, which will lead to high quality translational research in accordance with the faculty mission to advance the wellbeing of people. Students may take modules in quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods research methodology.
