About

The Nursing Studies postgraduate students at The University of Edinburgh have an outstanding record of contributing to the knowledge and evidence base in nursing. 

Overview

The Nursing Studies programme at The University of Edinburgh also has a strong tradition of welcoming students from overseas, as well as the UK.

Our main areas of research activity and development currently relate to the themes of experience of health and illness, and organisation and policy for person-centred care.

The main areas of study we can supervise for doctoral research are:

  • critical care
  • emotions and care
  • mental health
  • addictions and substance misuse
  • public health
  • community care and leadership
  • pain management
  • cancer care
  • nursing education
  • patient safety and quality issues.

We have expertise in a range of qualitative and quantitative and mixed methods research approaches.

Programme Structure

The MSc by Research in Nursing Studies provides students with an advanced understanding of research design, data collection and data analysis issues in nursing.

The programme is designed for qualified practitioners and graduates and enables students to develop their understanding of debates about research, evidence and practice in relation to nursing and related fields.

The distinctive features of this degree include:

  • integration of generic social science and discipline-specific nursing studies research training and development;
  • social science approaches to research training in nursing studies; and
  • close links with other disciplines including medicine.

The PhD/MPhil programme allows you to conduct an independent research project that makes a significant contribution to your chosen field of study and to further develop your research skills. We are able to offer supervision in a variety of specialist areas.
