Health Sciences

Our approach

Our vision is to create a world-class environment that fosters improvement in health outcomes and transformation in the delivery of health and social care, through learning and discovery and in partnership with our stakeholders. We are committed to developing the top clinical leaders and first-class practitioners of the future.

Healthcare is changing, both nationally and internationally. To improve health outcomes, we need distinctive and forward-looking leaders and practitioners – people who can influence key health and social policies.

We are working to meet the challenges of people more actively managing their own health, alongside developing the skills needed to provide radically different support to people with acute and long-term health conditions.

Health Sciences is widely recognised as a leading provider of research-based healthcare education. We are at the forefront of innovations in teaching and learning and have a dynamic research and consultancy profile. Many of our researchers play key roles in the development of major healthcare programmes.

Our aim is to develop future healthcare professionals who will make discoveries to challenge practice and create change through innovation. We are committed to ensuring that our education programmes are linked closely to our research activity.

We are a large and successful school, educating a wide range of non-medical professionals and undertaking a variety of excellent, cutting-edge undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes.

Our aim is to equip you to take on the challenges of transforming healthcare for the benefit of patients
