Research excellence

Sheffield is one of the world's leading research universities. Our work received a top-10 ranking for Research Power in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise.

The School has an excellent track record in supporting postgraduate researchers from around the world. Our research degrees involve independent study, supervised by leading academic staff. You will gain a range of high-level transferable skills that will be a valuable asset whatever your career.

Our research is grouped in three areas:

  • Child and Family Health and Wellbeing
  • Enhancing the lives of older people and their families
  • Palliative and End of Life Care

Important points to consider

  • Have you identified any potential supervisors?
  • Do you have a well-defined area of interest you wish to address, and are you able to describe your project plans?
  • Have you considered funding for the duration of your studies?

We accept applications to study for a PhD throughout the year but strongly encourage students to register for the autumn Semester (October) in order to benefit from all the activities available at that time. A second point of registration is available in early March. Please refer to our interests and areas of expertise via our staff pages for information on how we might support your research.
