Our academic staff

Our academic staff

Our academic staff include clinically qualified lecturers covering a range of subject areas, and the multi-disciplinary nature of the School fosters a dynamic and innovative learning environment.

Many of our clinical programmes have an integral period of placement that forms an assessed part of our degree courses. We are also working towards introducing placement or internship opportunities into all our programmes.

A placement is an important part of the course that helps you become an active part of your chosen communities and ensures you also graduate with a much wider skill set and chance of employment.

Whether you are a student, trainee, mentor, placement supervisor or educator, the information here links you to the important and necessary documentation and contact details for the teams working on your placements.
