Faculty of Science and Health

Working to improve society

Scientists across our vibrant Faculty are collaborating in research and exploring innovative ways of working to improve society.

The Faculty of Science and Health brings together six academic departments and schools that make diverse contributions to the University’s strategic mission as a globally competitive, research-intensive and student-focused institution.

With world-leading and internationally excellent (REF 2014) research and impact in health, life sciences, psychology, artificial intelligence, robotics, mathematics and Big Data, our strategy is to ensure that our research and education activities are mapped onto national and international research priorities.

Many of our staff have strong links to relevant industries and organisations, from the NHS to technology companies. Many of our degrees offer placement years or a year abroad, giving you an opportunity to develop additional skills and enhance your CV with relevant work experience.

For postgraduates our schools and departments have a range of taught and research degrees. Additionally the School of Health and Social Care, and School of Sports, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences, offer Continued Professional Development (CPD) courses which can support your career in health or social work.
