Students and staff are more likely to strive for excellence when they work in an environment where knowledge and skills are generated, challenged, tested and applied as well as being taught. This reflects the uniqueness of the Faculty of Life and Health Sciences. It has a reputation for internationally competitive research, for innovation in taught programmes and for the quality of the students’ educational experience.
