Health and Human Sciences BMedSc
By studying Health and Human Sciences you'll develop expertise in a range of fields related to some of the most pressing, important and challenging public health issues of our time.

You'll be challenged to explore questions such as:

Why do richer people live longer, healthier lives?
Why do some public health initiatives worsen health inequalities?
How can we use research evidence to inform health policy?
How can psychology help us understand people's behaviours?
How is a social model of health different to a medical model?

During your three years of study, you'll focus on five core themes: health systems, organisation and delivery; determinants of health and wellbeing; understanding and promoting relationships; evaluating and using information and evidence; biology and the body.

You'll be taught and supported throughout the course by a team of dedicated academics. Our teaching team includes experts in the fields of public health, health care delivery, leadership and management, health psychology, sociology, social policy, biology and biosciences.

In your third year, you'll have the opportunity to gain vital work experience in an area that reflects your career aspirations, by undertaking a professional work placement. This placement could be in an organisation related to public health, health policy, health management, social care and other related areas.

You might choose to carry out your placement in a clinical healthcare setting, such as midwifery, radiography or A&E. Alternatively, you could work on a real-life research project in a partnership with an academic or as part of a research group.

Whichever placement option you choose, we'll help you develop the professional skills you need for your chosen career.
