PhD Studentship: Transforming Lives, Inspiring Change: Investigating the social impact of university access strategies and approaches
Pay & Expenses: £15000 p.a. (including £1000 research expenses) and tuition fees for 3 years. Please note, the award covers tuition fees at the UK/EU rate only; those not eligible to pay UK/EU tuition fees must demonstrate that they can fund the difference.
Overview: The social mobility in Higher Education agenda recognises that widening access to University by extending opportunities to gain a place of study is not enough. It is also essential to investigate what happens to students once they embark upon a course, the support they receive, the experiences they undergo and the journey they take through different stages of the learning lifecycle. These phases form the platform upon which activities and learning opportunities can be effectively evaluated, innovation can be facilitated and targeted activities can be developed to address identified priority areas.

Currently, there is limited evidence of the impact of engaging in, and completing, NHS Digital Badges on children, young people and their teachers. The focus of the evaluation will be to investigate the psychosocial impact of NHS Digital Badges on children and young people and teachers within a primary school setting.
Aims are to:
- explore children and young people’s experiences of engaging in, and completing, digital badges;
- investigate the psychosocial effects of participating/completing digital badges with peers and teachers.
