The project offers an opportunity to develop and evaluate an innovative personalised coaching approach Description: All postgraduate researchers (PGRs) are registered in the University’s Graduate School and housed in the faculty or department that is most appropriate for the project in which they are working. PGRs working on health-related or medical projects are normally housed in the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine.


The Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine is one of the largest providers of health and social care education in the North West of England. It is the home of the new Edge Hill University Medical School. The Faculty has an excellent and rapidly growing research portfolio and community of postgraduate researchers. Research within the Faculty is supported by substantial external funding and involves both national and international collaborations. Our excellent relationships with health and social care providers ensure research in the Faculty is highly relevant to the rapidly changing health and social care landscape.


Research in the Faculty spans three main themes:


prevention and management of conditions in adults;

improving professional practice, and;

children, young people and families.


The University particularly welcomes applications for studentships in the project areas outlined below with additional research information on the research area web pages. All PGRs will be supported by a supervisory team with appropriate expertise. Also, see the University’s research repository for further information on the research outputs of each member of staff.
