Health and Social Work

A national centre of excellence, our School of Health and Social Work is the largest provider of radiography education, and the first in the country to offer paramedic degrees. You’ll be trained by our highly supportive academic staff, whose teaching can open the door to an incredibly rewarding career.

Strong industry partnerships keep us at the cutting edge of health and social care. Many of these partners offer placements so you’ll learn in real-world settings, improving lives and safeguarding futures every day.

I’ll never forget being on my first placement, when I helped to resuscitate a patient who had entered into cardiac arrest.  I knew then that this is what I want to do; save lives and do the best I can to make someone feel better. This always makes me feel happy.
