School of Health, Community and Education Studies

Situated at Northumbria University's Coach Lane Campus, a short 15 minute journey from Newcastle city centre by either bus or metro service, our learning and teaching facilities are either newly built or have been recently refurbished. Our professional preparation or pre-registration programmes in nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work and initial teacher training are all accredited and Profession approved, while our practice placement areas, besides being extensive are frequently monitored and audited to ensure your experience is positive and rewarding. Personal and organisational development following pre-registration are explicit components of our School Philosophy which mirrors the University's mission to offer Lifelong learning opportunities.
