Nursing Studies has an outstanding record of postgraduate students making significant contribution to the knowledge and evidence base in nursing. The programme also has a strong tradition of welcoming students from home and overseas.
The Phd/MPhil programme is an advanced research degree enabling students to conduct in-depth independent research on a topic of their choice, thereby contributing to the knowledge and evidence base for nursing.
The research interests of the Nursing Studies team are detailed on within the research area of this website:
Normal progression for PhD/MPhil in nursing involves spending the first year:
Progression to year two of the programme is dependent on satisfactory outcome from a review board for the programme.
As a model of work, the second year is spent doing the body of the research, usually empirical data collection and analysis, and the third year is spent completing the analysis and writing the thesis.
A student pursuing a PhD/MPhil in Nursing Studies will be able to attend a wide range of postgraduate seminar courses from across the College of Humanities and Social Science.
There is the opportunity to attend other courses in Nursing Studies as well courses provided by other areas of the School of Health in Social Science and related disciplines within the University.
Application for the programme can be made online.
