Our postgraduate research students are strategically very important to us. You will be a valuable source of support in the achievement of our research programmes. As a postgraduate research student you will have a first class supervisory team and access to our research facilities
and training resources
You will be registered in one of the three Schools of Study within the Faculty (School of Allied Health Professions
; Norwich Medical School
; School of Nursing Sciences
) and be a member of one of the Research Groups within your school. Each school within the Faculty has research programmes and/or units which are pursuing identified distinctive research strands generating research income, supervising postgraduate research students, producing publications of international quality and disseminating findings to wider audiences.
You will be allocated a primary supervisor, who will provide frequent personal supervision of the progress of your research. In addition at least one other member of academic staff will be assigned responsibility for your research. Together, these form a supervisory team who will meet with you on a regular basis.
Your primary supervisor will usually belong to the same Research Group as you but research which straddles Groups, Schools or Faculties is encouraged and facilitated by the Research Directors of the Schools and the Faculty’s Associate Dean for Research (Professor Ruth Hancock).
Details of academic staff and their research interests can be found by visiting the Faculty's people pages
