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.

Continued success in top 5!
