Academic Schools

With about 3000 students and 400 academic and administrative staff, the College consists of four academic schools:

The College, through the University, has formally linked with the recently established Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board enabling an integrated approach to developing research, training, medical and healthcare education that will serve the needs of North Wales.

Inter-school collaboration

Although each school/institute preserves its specific identity and subject integrity, the College fosters inter-school collaboration and shared academic goals and practices.

Our teaching is informed by world-class collaborative research – The College achieved an excellent set of results form the 2014 Research Exerecise Framework. This means that students have the opportunity to study with academics who are at the cutting edge of their academic disciplines, whether that is elite sports performance, nurse training or fMRI brain imaging.

An excellent reputation in teaching and student support

The College’s research capability is complemented by an excellent reputation in teaching and student support. The Schools of Healthcare Sciences, Psychology, and SSHES are nationally known for providing high quality teaching in their respective fields and have regularly been ranked very highly for student satisfaction and the developing School of Medical Sciences is building a reputation for delivering innovative undergraduate and postgraduate provision.
