The Institute is a dynamic, multi-professional department, which has expertise in health & well-being, learning disability, mental health, midwifery, nutritional therapy, nursing, psychology, social welfare and social work. It is based at the Henwick Grove Campus, with excellent facilities including skills laboratories, programmable androids and dedicated computer suites.
The Institute is sub-divided into four academic units: Psychological Sciences, Applied Social Sciences, Allied Health Sciences and Pre-Registration Nursing. All offer both vocational and non-vocational undergraduate and postgraduate courses that are taught by well qualified and enthusiastic staff. In addition, some of our courses are offered by local colleges (e.g. NEW College in Bromsgrove or Gloscol in Cheltenham). Underpinning all our courses is the belief that our students should be not just employable - “fit for work” - but that they should be “fit for life” and whatever the future holds in store for them.
