A bit about the School of Health & Society…

care to produce highly skilled graduates with real work experience. We are at
an interesting time in the Higher Education sector, there is significant
change in terms of oversight, student expectations and changing demographics

changes. Our connection to industry is stronger than ever and we're proud to
have more partnerships with SMEs than any other Greater Manchester University.
