Study With Us

As a postgraduate research student you will be a key member of one of the Faculty's research programmes that aim to enhance the health, quality of life and the experience of care of people and the populations in which they live.

Leading the way in research

Our expertise and research is world-leading and not only informs government policy whilst developing and delivering patient care but also accounted for more than £39 million in external funding, across 225 live projects. The results of the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) demonstrates that, on average, over 85 per cent of our research is rated as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'.

Excel in your chosen field

We have a proven track record in conducting research in clinical and biomedical fields; psychology; public health; primary care and other health services; health economics; and in the rehabilitation and management of long-term conditions. 

We also encourage and support work across the Faculty and capitalise on the strengths in both Norwich Medical School and School of Health Sciences, as well as the partner institutes on the Norwich Research Park

Our postgraduates tell us that they benefit greatly from the research collaboration, mentoring and networking within that group of academic staff and other postgraduate students within and across these exciting research programmes.
