The UK’s health and social care systems continue to provide high-quality care, however, it is crucial that we explore new technologies and ways of working to ensure the standards of care that we've come to expect are maintained.
The work we do in support of this ethos is underpinned by a culture of connectedness from the students we educate, to the research we carry out and through to our impact on the wider world. Integral throughout all of this is the involvement of patients and care providers in our work, ensuring it remains relevant to the challenges facing our society.
Studying for an MSc by Research in Health and Wellbeing gives you the opportunity to pursue in-depth your own personal or professional research interests in this wide-ranging field, which encompasses such diverse policy areas as health, education, housing, disability, crime, poverty, and the family. This MSc offers an outstanding opportunity to make an original contribution to the development and application of outcome research into real-life issues in healthcare delivery and policy.
