STEM building

See the progress on our new state-of-the-art £13.2m teaching centre for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students at our Colchester Campus.

We encourage multidisciplinary working and have a reputation for being at the forefront of training high-quality health care professionals. We have an excellent reputation for the quality of our teaching and research, with an ever expanding range of health, social care and voluntary sector related courses on offer.

We ensure educational provision meets professional regulatory requirements and achieves high standards. Our staff are multi-professional, have both clinical and academic credibility, and work across traditional boundaries. Our staff include nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, sociologists of health, psychologists, sports therapists, methodologists and specialists in health service management. In addition we draw on the expertise of visiting Fellows and lecturers who are experienced practitioners that provide further specialist contributions to our programmes.
