About the School

Welcome to the School of Human Sciences, which brings together the University's science based health related provision and the essential scientific disciplines that underpin such provision.

We focus on activities that consider the factors that influence human health and wellbeing to those, which are closely allied to medicine and approved by the Health Professions Council. A holistic approach to individual and community well being lies at the core of the School's activities and key scientific disciplines such as Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physiology, Microbiology are offered at degree level and provide essential underpinning for the more applied courses.

The University has invested over £30 million pounds in developing the Science Centre, which offers unparalleled facilities for teaching and research, including europes largest teaching laboratory housing 270 individual workstations, equipped with full computer, audio and video facilities.

The Science Centre also provides excellent opportunities for staff to carry out high-level research work across a range of subject areas and this ensures that the curriculum offered to students is up-to-date and meets the needs of employers.
