Information for international students - Faculty of Health, Social Care & Education

With over 6,000 students from more than 20 countries, our courses are designed to address the key challenges and issues faced both in the UK and internationally in health, social care and education.

We're the largest provider of health, social care and education courses in the east of England. With strong links with regional, national and international organisations, including healthcare trusts, schools and academic institutions, our students not only make an impact today but undertake meaningful research that will benefit generations to come.

Designed to enhance our students’ learning experience our facilities include state-of-the-art simulated clinical skills laboratories that emulate real UK hospital wards at all three of our campuses, giving you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a safe clinical environment. Working with fully responsive simulation mannequins in laboratories fitted with a range of healthcare equipment that mirror real-life clinical situations prepares our students for life working in a hospital setting.

Our students also benefit from a fully resourced Early Childhood Research and Resource Centre that gives our education students the opportunity to develop the skills they need to work in professional settings by experimenting with spaces, equipment, and play activities.  Having recently refreshed the room, we continue to improve our facilities to offer the most beneficial learning experience throughout your time with us.

Whether your ambition is to become a competent, caring healthcare professional, join the next generation of social workers and social policy professionals, or pursue a rewarding career in education and learning we can help achieve it.

This is the place to be if a person truly wants to develop his or her talents. Coming here has been the best decision that I've made.
