The University of Huddersfield, School of Human and Health Sciences offers various funded and partially funded opportunities including scholarships with fee waivers for Master’s by Research and PhD, and fully funded PhD studentships. The opportunities below cross the disciplines of Applied Health Sciences (including Sport & Exercise), Healthcare (including Nursing and Midwifery) and Health and Wellbeing. We are a multidisciplinary school and also offer funded opportunities within the disciplines of Social and Behavioural Sciences, some of which relate to health and wellbeing.
All scholarship schemes are assessed on a competitive basis judged on academic record, aptitude for research, quality of research proposal and willingness to play an active role within our research community, contributing to seminars and other research events. If you are shortlisted then you will be invited to an interview, conducted remotely via video conferencing as appropriate.
University encourages students to discuss your ideas with potential supervisors in advance of application. Where there are no supervisor contact details included with a funded opportunity, you should identify potential supervisors yourself in advance of application, via our searchable Research Portal and check their availability to supervise your proposed research.
We understand that undertaking postgraduate research can be daunting, which is why we have created three informal, online events where you will be able to meet with Dr Dawn Leeming our School Director of Graduate Education, who will provide further information about research opportunities within Health Sciences and Healthcare Research and provide details about the application process and entry criteria. Pre-booking required.
