Welcome to the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences - home to the largest selection of forward thinking vocational health and social care courses in the Midlands. It’s no surprise our courses in Nursing and Midwifery are ranked 9th in Guardian University Guide 2017, and four subject areas are in top 10 for the Complete University Guide 2018: Occupational Therapy, Food Sciences, Sport Science and Physiotherapy.
Schools within our Faculty include:
+ School of Life Sciences
+ School of Psychological, Social and Behavioural Sciences
+ School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health
With over 6000 students enrolled in the faculty, we make extensive use of innovative approaches to teaching and learning including podcasting, interactive online discussion, and the use of mobile technologies.
Our dedication is demonstrated through our £60 million investment plan. The new Science and Health Building, due to open to students in October 2017, will provide state-of-the-art facilities for hospital simulation, rehabilitation, clinical skills training, sport and exercise environments. The building will also include a Biosciences super-lab and a range of life sciences research facilities.
Not content just with local impact, you will have access to our worldwide links with universities and institutions, currently with active collaborations in China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Turkey.
