Course content

Drawing on cutting edge research, the College of Human and Health Sciences is bringing about real-life benefits for the healthcare, social care, voluntary and private sectors ultimately leading to improvements for patients, users, practitioners, managers and policy makers.

As a forerunner in the field, the College is well placed to respond rapidly to changes in the delivery of care, whilst also establishing links with the main service providers in Wales, such as the NHS. Our researchers are continually working to tackle the challenges facing the health and social care system across the full range of areas, from biomedical studies, service organisation, workforce practices and public health through to policy and ethics.

Currently students are looking at effecting change in an elderly rehabilitation service, creating, implementing and evaluating an equitable lymphoedema service in Wales.
