Summary

The importance of psychological factors in promoting good health and managing illness and health risks is an increasingly important field of study.

Research students are currently exploring interventions to address the psychosocial needs of people living with chronic illnesses such as cancer and heart disease and developing methods to encourage children and young people to engage in healthy lifestyle behaviours.

As a student at the College of Human and Health Sciences, you will benefit from a dynamic and supportive research environment with many opportunities to make connections across disciplines and develop links with organisations and policy makers both in the UK and abroad. As such, you can be confident that your research will inform and be informed by the wider health and social care environment.
