The Research Degree

A PhD is the highest academic award for which a student can be registered. This programme allows you to explore and pursue a research project built around a substantial piece of work, which has to show evidence of original contribution to knowledge.

A part time PhD is a six year programme of research and culminates in the production of a large-scale piece of written work in the form of a research thesis that should not normally exceed 80,000 to 100,000 words.

Completing a PhD can give you a great sense of personal achievement and help you develop a high level of transferable skills which will be useful in your subsequent career, as well as contributing to the development of knowledge in your chosen field.

You are expected to work to an approved programme of work including appropriate programmes of postgraduate study (which may be drawn from parts of existing postgraduate courses, final year degree programmes, conferences, seminars, masterclasses, guided reading or a combination of study methods).

You will be appointed a main supervisor who will normally be part of a supervisory team, comprising up to three members to advise and support you on your project.


Start date:
This research degree has multiple possible start dates including:
18 / 09 / 2017
08 / 01 / 2018
16 / 04 / 2018

Your start date may be decided in agreement with your supervisor.

Duration:

The maximum duration for a part time PhD is 6 years (72 months) with an optional submission pending (writing up period) of 12 months.

If studying on a part-time basis, you must establish close links with the University and spend normally not less than an average of 10 working days per year in the university, excluding participation in activities associated with enrolment, re-registration and progression monitoring.You are also expected to dedicate 17.5 hours per week to the research.

Sometimes it may be possible to mix periods of both full-time and part-time study.

Entry requirements

The normal level of attainment required for entry is:

•  a Master's degree from a UK University or equivalent, in a discipline appropriate to the proposed programme to be followed, or

Can ankle strength be predicted in specific populations?
Outline
Equations exist that can predict ankle strength in a healthy adult population but these have not been tested in for example older populations, specific sporting populations, in diabetic or CP patients. Exploration of some of these areas could be beneficial for rehabilitation and prevention of injury.

Exploring the role of health coaching and its impact within health professional practice.
Outline
Coaching is a recognised process that facilitates the exploration of needs, motivations, desires, skills and thought processes to assist the individual in making real, lasting change. Coaching skills include the development of empathy, questioning techniques, observation and listening skills. These skills, once learned, have a wide range of applications and may be of particular benefit in releasing a person’s potential to maximise their own health by raising awareness and increasing personal responsibility. The links between coaching and facilitating learning, by raising awareness of personal responsibility are also strong. A potential study would explore the role of coaching skills in health care professional practice. Evaluation of impact would be extremely valuable.

Exploring young peoples’ understanding of mental health and suggestions for early interventions for young people experiencing mental health issues
Outline
Guidance for the treatment of depression in young people recommended that qualitative research examined the experiences in the care pathway of children and young people and their families (and perhaps professionals) in order to inform decisions about what the most appropriate care pathway should be (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, 2005). The research is likely therefore to use a qualitative method. The focus could be on a particular group of people or type of mental illness, such as depression or anxiety.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Boxercise
Outline
Studies suggest that a major reason people cite not participating in routine exercise is a perceived lack of time. The popularity of short HIIT training protocols has been on the rise in recent years, and there is evidence to suggest that greater health/fitness adaptation can be gained from this form of training as opposed to traditional endurance exercise. Proposals around this emerging field would be welcomed.

Improving substance use and mental health treatment
Outline
People who use mental health services often have co-occurring substance use problems. However, mental health staff are not necessarily equipped to be able to manage this. This has lead to issues around clinical safety (management of intoxication; overdose) as well as other issues such as violence, exacerbation of mental health issues. Studies could examine lived experience of substance use in mental health care; staff responses to substance use (therapeutic v punitive); staff attitudes to substance use; development of interventions to improve safety and decision-making in mental health nursing. However, this list is not meant to be restrictive.

Pedagogies for professional practice
Outline
Professional practice, either as a health and social care practitioner, teacher, trainer or manager, requires certain ways of thinking and being. Professional practice requires confidence and competence in a changing world, the ability to challenge old ways of doing things, to problem solve, to work collaboratively and to lead change. This study would aim to explore the philosophical and pedagogical underpinnings of the curriculum designers and educators of a range of programmes leading to professional qualifications (ie to be registered with a professional body). Impact on the student’s preparedness for professionalism as outlined above would be evaluated. The role of technology in the learning process may or may not be included.

Perception of concussion amongst recreational youth athletes
Outline
Concussion is currently a hot topic within the world of professional contact sports such as rugby and American football. Whilst the awareness of the dangers of concussion is improving within the professional circuit, it is unclear if amateur athletes are aware of such risks. Additionally, do athletes who are taking part in sports which may not be as clearly physical as rugby and American football, understand that concussion is still a potential risk when participating in their sport? Proposals around this emerging field would be welcomed.

Recording dietary intake when working in the field
Outline
Traditional methods of collecting dietary intake data, such as the 7-day food diary, can place a high responsibility and time burden on the participant and the researcher alike. When working with a sports team a nutritionist/dietician will likely work part-time (1-2 days a week), and will be expected to work with large numbers of athletes. Therefore it is important for them to be able to collect and analyse data quickly and efficiently. What methods do nutritionists/dieticians use when working within team sport environments? Proposals around this emerging field would be welcomed.

The effect of ergogenic aids on exercise performance and recovery
Outline
This is a very general topic area covering a number of potential avenues of research. The term ergogenic aids could refer to nutritional interventions that enhance recovery following exercise, or improve exercise tolerance and performance. The term could also refer to interventions such as the use of cold water immersion or warm-up strategies to accelerate recovery or augment subsequent performance. The precise exercise stimuli can be varied, with all sports considered.

The effect of one-dose of Montgomery Cherry Juice
Outline
The Montgomery cherry has received increased interest within recent literature for its potential as a nutritional recovery supplement following a bout of muscle damaging exercise. Generally these studies have investigated these potential effects within a lab setting and have loaded participants in the day(s) prior to the testing in addition to providing them with the supplement post-exercise. In real world settings, such as elite sport, a load prior to exercise may not be practical, and the supplement may only be taken post-game. Proposals around this emerging field would be welcomed.
