About the faculty

The School of Health and Life Sciences was established in 2011, following the merger of the School of Health and the School of Life Sciences. By bringing Health, Nursing and Social Care disciplines together with Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Psychology and Vision Sciences, the School is one of the largest providers of health care and life science education in Scotland.

Professional links:  The School and its staff have very close links with the professional and regulatory bodies and all programmes receive professional recognition both nationally and internationally. It provides students with an exciting and dynamic environment in which to further their professional and academic careers, enriched through its interdisciplinary and internationally-facing research.

Research activities:  The School has a very active research community with expertise across a wide variety of areas relevant to human health and well-being. The RAE 2008 showed the University’s research in allied health is ranked top in Scotland and in the UK top 10. It also judged that that 77.4% of the School’s research in Biomedical and Vision Sciences was internationally recognized, and submissions in Biomedical and Vision Sciences and in Psychology obtained the highest rewards in their subjects from any modern university in Scotland.

We  have a long tradition of conducting research that is economically and socially relevant - applying new knowledge to problems of global significance. The School contributes to the University’s world-leading research and supports collaborative education in nursing, midwifery, social work, allied health professions, biological and biomedical sciences, psychology and vision sciences.
