  • They don’t offer good facilities for parking of the coaches. Year after year I am facing this issue and they are not looking after it. They also don’t have quality bathrooms and food service.

  • Getting the chance to study here was the best thing happens in my life. Never expected about the facilities that they provide.
    |
  • Everything is good at the university except one thing that is the gym is opened for not only the students. This makes the gym overcrowded.

Description

On completion of this course, you will:

understand the social science underpinning the development of effective interventions, strategies, and policies aimed at sustainable improvements in health and wellbeing, and reducing physical and psychological health inequalities
have an interdisciplinary understanding of the links between social, biological and environmental factors and individual health behaviours, choices, and outcomes
understand contemporary issues related to modifiable disease risk behaviours, and the determinants and correlates of these lifestyle behaviours across the lifespan
understand the interdisciplinary skills and processes required to translate scientific research into practical health and well-being applications
Working under the supervision of our academic staff, you will be able to pursue a line of study and research that is relevant to your own interests. You will be encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and identify and investigate your own original research questions.
South West Doctoral Training Partnership
This MRes is recognised by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), specifically, as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). It can be taken as a course in its own right or if you hold an SWDTP studentship you can take the 1+3 (MRes + PhD) pathway.

If you wish to be considered for a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, then you must apply for your preferred PhD route and not the stand alone MRes. You should follow our how to apply and funding guidelines.

For those holding a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, progression from the MRes to the MPhil or PhD stage is dependent on an acceptable level of achievement.
