An outline of the research projects aligned to each of the five studentships, including the title and description of the activity, is available from the School’s website: www.qub.ac.uk/nur, as well as links to the PURE profiles of the academic supervisors.

 

Obtaining the studentship will be a competitive process. The Scheme is open to students:

Successful students will work alongside the supervisor(s) to complete the studentship on a full time basis over 6 consecutive weeks.  Students will be awarded a stipend of £200 per week.  As part of the scheme, students will be required to present their work at a Research Studentship Symposium to be held at the end of the 2018/19 academic year.  This event will be open to staff and students of the School of Nursing and Midwifery, and their families.
