Our Health Sciences students learn the necessary technical knowledge, clinical skills and patient care values to progress into successful careers in Nursing and Allied Health Professions. Academic staff are experienced, registered, practitioners who are continually developing their own professional knowledge and skills, based on the latest research and practice.
Our curricula are developed in conjunction with the professional statutory and regulatory bodies, clinical practice partners, and key stakeholders. This not only guarantees that our teaching is relevant to today's workplace, but also provides exciting opportunities for our students to gain clinical experience in a region with a significantly diverse patient population.
Psychology students benefit from a long tradition of world-leading excellence in research and research-connected undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. They receive practical, hands on teaching and tackle real-world issues in a curriculum that is British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited. They have the opportunity to work alongside inspiring academics who are internationally-renowned researchers and experts in their field.
Our teaching ethos
We aim to deliver innovative and student-centred teaching that is underpinned by current research and clinical practice and delivered by talented and enthusiastic educators, practicing clinicians and experts. Methods of teaching and assessment are designed to realistically reflect the demands of clinical practice and the professional workplace in order to maximise the employability of our students.
Our learning community
Our students originate from a diverse range of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. We value the wealth of experience, skills and knowledge that diversity brings to the experience of staff and students at the University. We aim for our students to develop a sense of identity and pride in their chosen profession and work hard to ensure that students enjoy every aspect of their experience with us.
Support and wellbeing
The wellbeing of our staff and students is our top priority. We have in place a range of mechanisms to ensure early identification of issues and ease of access to support when needed. Each of our undergraduates are assigned a personal academic advisor to meet with at regular intervals and we operate a range of successful peer mentoring and peer learning initiatives.
