Health Sciences

Welcome from Dr Bronagh Walsh

I am pleased to welcome you to the School of Health Sciences. We hope that your doctoral programme will provide you with a stimulating and rewarding learning experience and that you will enjoy studying with us. I look forward to meeting you in the School Doctoral Training Programme and PGR student forum sessions.

During your PhD, formal support will come from the Faculty Graduate School as well as your supervisor and other members of your supervisory team. Many PhD students also gain valuable support from other members of their research group. Please make use of the Health Doctorates site on Blackboard, where you will find programme information, details of the training programme and announcements.

All important documents and guides are available on the Doctoral College site. In addition, the Health Sciences Blackboard site provides announcements about School-specific training and opportunities.
