About the Schools
The Schools of Health and Society and Health Sciences are forward-thinking, dynamic schools with a commitment to lifelong learning and real world impact by focusing on the health and wellbeing of people and helping them at all stages of their lives. In September 2018 the Schools will be merging to create one School. These studentships offer a chance to bring together interests across the Schools.
We are focused on developing our knowledge and understanding, so we can actively help people, our clients, to lead more productive, comfortable lives. We have a fantastic range of facilities which reflect those in practice and focus on new technologies and pioneering techniques.
About our research
Our research underpins our teaching and learning, ensuring our staff, students and partner organisations reach their full potential and remain at the forefront of innovation.
Research is organised into two Centres:
- Centre for Applied Research in Health, Welfare and Policy (CaRe)
- Centre for Health Sciences Research
More details regarding our research and our research staff (and their interests) can be found on the above websites.
