Lisa Roberts

Welcome to the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences (FHMS). The Faculty is the second largest in the University, with 2000 full-time and nearly 2000 part-time students.

In 2014 the University has risen substantially in the league tables, moving to 6th in the Guardian league table and 12th in the Complete University Guide. Within the faculty, the Guardian ranks us 13th for Nursing programmes and 13th for Biosciences. The Times Good University Guide ranks us 7th in the country for Food Science and 13th for our Nursing courses.  The University has also risen to 9th in the National Student Survey (NSS).

As well as expertise in learning and teaching in biosciences and health and social care, our faculty is also widely recognised for world-class research. Our research in the biomedical sciences is ranked in the top 5% of institutions in the country, and has led to improved  understanding and treatment of diabetes, cancer, addiction, cardiovascular and infectious diseases.  In addition, we have world-leading research in sleep and chronobiology and systems biology.    

Whether you are here to study for a first or higher degree or are a short-term visitor, I wish you every success in your time here and warmly welcome you to our Faculty.
