Health Sciences

At Health Sciences everything we do is powered by world-class research. In a culture of collaboration, discovery and excellence, we pioneer advances in clinical practice and shape the future of healthcare delivery.

We provide a first-class environment for cutting edge research to prepare tomorrow’s nurses, physiotherapists, midwives, occupational therapists, clinical physiologists and podiatrists to shape and advance practice across the world. We also support the continued professional development of health professionals, through a range of individual modules.

We're top ten in the world

Nursing at the University is ranked 9th in the world and third in the UK according to the QS World Rankings by Subject 2018/19

At Southampton we believe first class research is one of the key drivers to delivering care of the highest quality and ensuring that nursing continues to be a profession that attracts the brightest and the best.
