The PhD programme runs over three years full-time and six years part-time.

In the first year, students typically choose a number of optional taught postgraduate courses from within the School of Health, or other Schools within the University, as appropriate to their research programme, and as agreed with their supervisor.

Subsequent years of the PhD programme primarily focus on the completion and analysis of the main research project, which can then be written up and completed by the end of the third year.
