About Us

The Faculty has a strong focus on the training of health and education professionals and we're growing our life sciences portfolio.

We have a proven record for graduate recruitment and our graduates are very successful in finding employment, with many taking jobs in the West Midlands.

Courses are taught by a range of experienced practitioners, many of whom still have links in the education and healthcare sectors.

Regional provider

We are the West Midlands regional provider for the pioneering education charity, Teach First and we work with Teaching Schools and School Alliances in the delivery of the School Direct programme.

Health, Education and Life Sciences


At the moment we are a dual campus faculty - with our healthcare courses based at the state-of-the-art, purpose-built Seacole building at City South Campus and our education courses based at the Atwood building at City North Campus. 

One campus from 2017

Preview the progress - our new home is nearly ready!

With the £41 million extension nearly complete, we've been for a sneak peek in advance of the big move.

Our new facilities at City South

We are constantly investing in our estate and are currently in the process of spending £260 million on new learning facilities.

As part of these plans, the University's Education provision will join the rest of the Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences at our City South Campus in Edgbaston during 2018.

This is the third phase of the University's project to move all teaching and learning to two campuses, City Centre and City South. By moving our Education provision, we are creating a hub for the provision of public service contracts and professional development at City South Campus and improving the student experience with a stronger sense of community and more consistent support services and facilities.

In addition to classrooms, a lecture theatre, social learning spaces, an open access IT suite and cafe facilities, the new £41 million extension to our City South Campus offers a range of specialist teaching and learning facilities for specific subjects including science, design and technology, drama and physical education.
