Making a difference to the health and wellbeing of communities and individuals

If you’re passionate about helping people to maintain the best possible health and quality of life, or fighting inequality and protecting the vulnerable, then the School of Health and Community Studies is for you.

All of our research and teaching contributes to this commitment. Many of our undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses are professional body accredited and supported by the latest academic thinking from our research.

All of our academics have worked in health, public health or social care, and many still maintain their professional practice to ensure that we maintain a strong link between our teaching and the demands of the professional workplace. We bring this professionalism to the way in which we support our students through their learning.

Our courses could lead you to a challenging and rewarding career in healthcare, social work, children’s services, family support, local mental health services, community development and much more.
