The first year offers a unique training opportunity; students will have access to senior scientists and public health decision makers and take a range of self-selected taught modules to complement their existing skills. Health and social sciences graduates will develop advanced quantitative analytical skills and those with quantitative analytical degrees will receive training in public health. Rotations through three “research attachments” will allow students to experience research in multiple topic areas with potential supervisors before finalising the topic of the research project they will complete during years two to four.
We award 5 studentships per year (three funded by the Wellcome Trust and two by the University of Sheffield), two of which can cover overseas fees.
