The University of South Wales has a strong tradition of health science education at all levels, from undergraduate training to postgraduate study and research.
By focusing on the workplace and preparation for practice, it allows specialist research units and centres to operate across the spectrum of health, education, sport and science.
Although staff members are aligned to one research area, the Faculty have adopted a holistic approach and collaboration across the different research units and groups is common. Researchers create links with health economics, social policy and psychology providing solutions to real-life problems.
Within health and social care, the Faculty have established units of national and international renown in learning disabilities, genetics education and public engagement, and health economics.
