Health Sciences PhD Studentship

The Faculty of Science has an outstanding commitment to research as indicated by its rich and vibrant postgraduate research environment and vast recent investments in the new state-of-Art facilities within the School of Health Sciences.

In collaboration with the Football Association (FA), governing body of football in England, the School of Health Sciences is offering a PhD Studentship in ‘Walking football as a health intervention for older adults’. Due to the rise in health-related issues within the UK population, the national health services face major challenges in terms of both budget and staffing.  Recent research has found that the potential health benefits of football are multifaceted and could potentially help counteract some of the before mentioned health issues. Applications are invited from potential applicants to pursue PhD research in this very exciting and rapidly evolving field.

Please see our PhD Studentship: Walking football as a health intervention for older adults for more information.
