We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
As a health professional, you might work with children or adults. You could work in an NHS hospital, a private practice, a school or in industry. Perhaps you’d like to support children in a mainstream school who have difficulty communicating? Maybe you’d like to work in the community to help rehabilitate adults who have experienced traumatic brain injuries? Or, in a neonatal unit in an NHS hospital, assessing and managing babies with difficulties feeding?
Whichever field of healthcare you work in, or the career path you hope to follow, we will help you to develop the skills you will need to shape and improve lives every day. We’re based in the Brooks building, a £139m development which features specialist facilities across all areas of health, psychology and social care to help develop your skills and knowledge. This includes the Manchester Movement Unit, our campus based physiotherapy clinic led by senior lecturers at Manchester Met.
As a student in our Faculty, you’ll be part of a thriving, collaborative academic community. We continually adapt our programmes to changes in legislation and government policy to provide you with the essential skills, knowledge and professionalism to prepare you for future practice.
People’s relationships with food have never had a higher profile in the public sphere, and workplace safety and worker health is an increasingly significant debate. Our courses help to prepare you for a variety of opportunities within the field of food, nutrition and health, from public health, safety legislation and product development, to working with sports teams. Our practical facilities are of industry standard, allowing you to gain highly desirable skills and technical knowledge to work confidently in specialised environments.
With Manchester as the first fully devolved city in England to have full control over all its health and social care spending, we are leading the way in developing integrated care models. Experienced academics design and deliver our courses, with the aim of developing your clinical and academic skills as you continue your own practice. Whether you’re just beginning your career or are a seasoned practitioner, you’ll have the opportunity to gain academic recognition for the clinical work you’ve completed.
We support our psychology students to develop their natural curiosity, creating graduates equipped to explore the human experience in an ethical, empathetic and scientific manner. The department offers a diverse portfolio, including clinical psychology, health psychology and forensic psychology. Our staff engage in a wide range of research areas, and you may have the opportunity to get involved with some of our research projects to see what it’s like to undertake research study in a working environment.
