Health, nursing, midwifery and social work

Take your place in our health profession and social work services. One of the most rewarding, yet challenging industries within the country.

From facilitating the recovery of a stroke patient and helping a patient with cystic fibrosis maintain their independence, to racing to the scene of a car crash, a career in health will put you on the front line of delivering care to communities.

Our programmes will challenge you to explore the human body and function while demonstrating the rewards of your hard work and commitment through transforming patients' lives.

Our health, nursing and midwifery courses rank very highly across all subjects including nursing which is 9th in the UK (Guardian University Guide, 2024) and feature in the top 25% of all UK universities for allied health research impact (Research Excellence Framework, 2021). Our programme was also shortlisted for the Mary Seacole Award for outstanding contribution to diversity and inclusion, and The Best Student Experience Award (Student Nursing Times Awards, 2021).

Benefit from learning in our state-of-the-art environment including specialist labs and simulation centres. Our courses are designed alongside service users, employers and the NHS to ensure you develop essential theoretical and practical skills as well as fostering a care-giver approach to work.
