Faculty of Health and Care

The Faculty of Health and Care is one of the largest providers of health and care education and professional development in the North West, offering flexible delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate modular-based courses and research degrees.

Our portfolio has been developed and is continuously updated collaboratively with staff from local partner provider organisations, patients, carers and members of the public, in response to local needs, incorporating national policy and evidence-based practice, mapped against professional statutory regulatory body education and training standards.

As a Faculty, we pride ourselves on giving our students, staff and partners the opportunities to achieve their full potential, no matter their background.

Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do, from our evidence-based education to our applied research and innovation, responding quickly to local needs, national policy and international perspectives.
