School of Health, Science and Wellbeing

We support students through all stages of their career, from their first degree to continuing professional development and postgraduate study.

Our staff conduct internationally recognised research which is making a real difference to regional communities. Our courses and research are based on the Stoke-on-Trent campus. There our students, staff and partners enjoy the state-of-the-art learning and teaching spaces on hand within the Science Centre.

Great facilities on our Stoke-on-Trent campus – and at our Centre of Excellence in Healthcare Education in Stafford – provide an innovative learning environment for health and social care students undertaking professional study.

Working in partnership with employers such as the National Health Service (NHS), West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) and local authorities, as well as independent and voluntary health and social care agencies, we deliver a great learning experience. And we are always seeking to improve the quality of health and social care through education, research and innovation.

From day one, students are immersed in exciting, interactive and digitally supported learning opportunities. By focusing on applying research to real-world settings, and by working with employers and key industry and professional partners, we provide students with the skills and networks to maximise their employability and career prospects.
