Each year, our Faculty of Health, Social Care & Education offers research internships to high-calibre students who are considering studying a PhD. Here's Richard's story.
We offer internships in three subjects – social work and social policy, education and health. It's a chance to undertake a piece of research with academic guidance. These are all areas that we'll submit to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021.
Current ARU student Richard Boamah-arase felt our internship was an opportunity he had to take advantage of.
Richard has been undertaking the internship since April 2017, and is due to finish in early August. The internship is part-time and fits around his current studies. The title of his project is An exploration of how a university can enhance the quality of life for people with dementia and their families/carer.
Our faculty firmly believes in lifelong learning and offers a range of high-quality courses that cover current topical issues. With 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem during their lifetime, the innovative delivery of our MSc Mental Health helps to increase knowledge and understanding of mental health care.
