The Faculty of Health Studies, University of Bradford
Our students graduate equipped with the employability skills they need to succeed in a wide range of healthcare and associated professions, along with the foundations for further study.
The latest data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) shows that more than 96% of graduates from the Faculty of Health Studies enter employment or further study shortly after graduating.
At the Faculty of Health Studies, students benefit from the state-of-the-art facilities in our £10m building, opened in 2011. Designed to give our students the closest possible ‘real-life’ practical experience, the facilities include two fully equipped clinical wards, two physiotherapy rooms, a movement laboratory, a practical room for student midwives, and two suites for Occupational Therapy including a ‘home from home’ room. Radiographers have access to a fully functioning X-ray suite and a further digital Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) suite to teach analysis of X-rays and scans.
The Faculty is highly regarded for nursing and allied health professions. We work with a number of partners in health and social care, as well as the Third Sector, to make sure that you learn from the best people possible, including leading academics, healthcare professionals and active researchers.
Students interact with service users and carers from a huge variety of backgrounds through regional NHS trusts and social care providers, experience that is priceless in the working world. Shared teaching and research expertise from the Faculty is offered through interdisciplinary teaching across our core research modules. To provide practical experience and give insight into the patient journey, service users and carers are involved in studies from the beginning through to the end.
