Project description:

This is a unique opportunity to be part of the development of an exciting new approach to ensuring that people with dementia are able to end their days in comfort and with dignity. Many people who have been living with dementia are admitted into hospital at the end of their life. This can result in a number of difficult scenarios. For example, family members and carers are often shocked to hear that a person is dying and may have difficulty accepting this. There is an urgent need to improve the end-of-life care for people with dementia, given the rapidly increasing numbers of people affected by this life-limiting illness, and the current underdevelopment and variability of practice.

What does the funded studentship include?

Funded candidates will receive a maintenance grant of £15,000 per annum (unless otherwise specified), to cover their living expenses and have their fees waived for 48 months. In addition, research costs, including field work and conference attendance, will be met.

Funded Studentships are open to both UK/EU and International students unless otherwise specified.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Registration with (or, for international candidates, ability to register with) the Nursing and Midwifery Council, Health and Care Professions Council, or General Medical Council.

In addition to satisfying basic entry criteria, BU will look closely at the qualities, skills and background of each candidate and what they can bring to their chosen research project in order to ensure successful and timely completion.
