The School of Health and Social Care is a multi-professional teaching and research centre and a leading provider of undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing professional development education. Our aim is to generate improvements in health and social care practice through high-quality education, partnership working, practice development and research.
We are rapidly establishing ourselves as an international centre for research, education and training in a variety of areas, and the School is home to inspiring and dedicated research and teaching staff who are leaders in their fields.
We offer a wide range of innovative undergraduate and postgraduate taught, research and Continuing Professional Development programmes in the field of Health and Social Care. Some programmes attract NHS bursaries, and many combine rigorous academic study with clinical placements.
Research within the School is diverse, and focused in areas such as women’s health, diabetes, preventative and social care, cancer and supportive care, emergency cardiovascular care, non-medical prescribing and long-term conditions. Find out more about Research within the Faculty.
