About us

Faculty of Health Sciences

The Faculty of Health Sciences consists of 2,400 undergraduate, over 1000 postgraduate taught and 200 research postgraduate students. It has 170 academic and 80 other staff.

The Faculty integrates world-class research, education, clinical practice and enterprise, creating an unrivalled environment for learning, discovery and innovation in health sciences.

Whether training the next generation of health professionals or enabling experienced practitioners to advance their knowledge our courses cover a broad spectrum of health professions. We prepare nurses, physiotherapists, midwives, occupational therapists, health scientists and podiatrists to become caring, confident practitioners, ready to lead transformations in practice and health service delivery for the benefit of all.

The main academic activity of the Faculty is located on the main Highfield campus of the University, although there are a number of teaching outposts located across the south Hampshire region. As well as academic teaching, the Faculty of Health Sciences is a major contributor to continuous professional development training in key disciplines.
