Our postgraduate research students are part of a growing and vibrant research student community in the Faculty of Health, Social Care & Medicine. The Faculty is building and developing our research student portfolio whilst, at the same time, retaining our friendly, personal approach to supervision and support.
The Faculty of Health, Social Care & Medicine has an excellent and rapidly growing research portfolio. Research is supported by substantial external funding and involves both national and international collaborations. Excellent relationships with health and social care providers ensures research in the Faculty is highly relevant to the rapidly changing health and social care landscape.
As a postgraduate research student within the Faculty, you will be supported by our Postgraduate Research Student Tutor who actively engages with all our students. In addition, all postgraduate research students within Edge Hill University are supported by the Graduate School who co-ordinate central training and support.
Doing a PhD is a challenge, but you always find the support from supervisors picks you up and keeps you going.
