Welcome to the College
We offer a dynamic, modern environment for study and research, built on decades of highly respected achievement. It's a track record of innovation we believe few can match. The College has nearly a thousand staff and approaching 4,000 students in its three schools, which cover the biological, medical and human sciences.
This means we offer a wide range of courses and expertise, with our quality recognised throughout the scientific community. As are our achievements, which include the development of DNA fingerprinting, vital advances in fighting heart disease, cancer, respiratory diseases and diabetes, and developments in forensic psychology.
The College, headed by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Head of College and Dean of Medicine, Professor Philip Baker, is a thriving community of academic expertise based in laboratory, clinical, health and social science settings. With some of the newest purpose-built scientific accommodation in the country, and the friendliness and resources of the University and the city’s excellent facilities, you will understand why we attract leading scientists here - not to mention some of the most promising students from the UK and around the world!
