Faculty of Life Sciences
We are the largest faculty in the University and comprise of four Schools and their associated research and knowledge exchange centres.
We are fully engaged in cutting-edge research and seek to apply the knowledge we generate through our extensive links with industry, business and the professions. The majority of our courses are accredited by external bodies and lead to rewarding and highly-regarded careers. Our students experience innovative approaches to teaching and learning in modern and well equipped laboratories and have access to some of the most advanced technology-enhanced learning opportunities in the country.
Our students also benefit from working "on placement" in laboratories, clinics, industrial facilities and archaeological excavations. As well as being excellent and committed teachers, the majority of our academic staff are also active researchers and/or practitioners so our students experience the excitement surrounding new discoveries, and their application, and are aware of the latest developments long before they appear in textbooks.
