Our research has a truly international outlook and wide-ranging impacts on society, the economy, health and welfare, culture, public policy and the environment.

We collaborate with many external organisations and this is key to impactful research. We recognise that postgraduate researchers contribute to the vitality and growth of the university, and play an essential role in our research activity. We value their contributions to the academic community, and so the academic success and personal development of each postgraduate researcher is very important to us. We are committed to excellence in our supervision, and in our training programmes.

Our postgraduate researchers can access a wealth of opportunities to interact academically and socially through conferences, seminars and social events. They have opportunity to contribute to discussions and decisions about research degrees through representation on our Postgraduate Research Committees, and so can help to shape experiences for our students in the future.

I look forward to meeting you all during your studies and thank you for the contribution I know you will make to this school. Welcome to Nottingham and to the exciting challenge of being a postgraduate researcher in the School of Health Sciences!
