Postgraduate Research

Cardiff School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies offers both a PhD Research Programme, and Professional Doctorate for those considering further research in nursing and midwifery. 

Students embarking on these programmes join a well-supported and lively research community, with access to scholars working on world-leading research.

Cardiff School of Healthcare Sciences currently has an RCN funded PhD opportunity available:

PhD in Exploring Resilience in Contemporary Nursing

This is a fully funded studentship that will provide the opportunity for high quality research training that explores contemporary pressures facing nurses in Wales, and how resilience within the nursing workforce can be better understood and, hopefully, enhanced.


A PhD in nursing or midwifery provides an opportunity to develop a programme of research that will make a unique contribution to knowledge and practice within your professional field.
