As a School within the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Sciences, we are uniquely positioned to offer an innovative approach to interprofessional education using the latest technologies in simulated learning. We pride ourselves on offering programmes that integrate theory and clinical practice, preparing our students to be sought after practitioners capable of delivering health care around the globe. Our training partners include internationally-recognised clinical institutions and community care services. Our students benefit from teaching by staff, who are actively engaged
in areas of speciality practice. We make sure our programmes meet the needs of service users and carers with our established Service Users and Carers' Forum.
The School’s research excellence is evidenced by our return in the 2008 RAE with over 50 per cent of outputs ranked 3* or 4*. With a multidisciplinary approach to our programmes of research in the fields of Maternal and Child Health and Cancer, Supportive and Palliative Care, we are internationally recognised for our PhD research training programme. We have a vibrant research culture, with international collaborators as investigators on Research Council UK, Health Research Board and charitable organisation-funded projects, and international students undertaking PhD studies.
Students can avail of opportunities to visit the School’s international partner institutions to further develop their careers. The School offers scholarships and travel awards to support students in their journey of education and learning - both at home and internationally.
We welcome students from around the world to participate in our programmes. We have a Personal Tutor scheme that provides educational and pastoral support to students on a one-to-one basis. We work closely with Queen’s Student Plus Directorate to provide a safe and culturally diverse learning experience for students while they are in the School. Together with Student Plus and the Student Union, we support our students to contribute and grow, and to better develop academic performance with an ethos of social inclusion and community. A wide range of learning opportunities at undergraduate and postgraduate levels are available depending upon the needs of the individual learner and/or service provider.
