We are known for excellence. Students are at the centre of our education, and people at the centre of our research. We provide an engaging and stimulating student-centred education environment, attracting the best students and researchers nationally and internationally. We offer undergraduate and master's courses and three majors across seven disciplines.
We collaborate with external partners and engage with real-world problems to anticipate the health issues of tomorrow while overcoming the challenges of today. Our high-impact research is acknowledged and translated into practice and policy nationally and internationally. Our multidisciplinary research themes and centres reflect the strength, diversity and depth of our research. Our master's and PhD research degrees offer the opportunity to work alongside our world-leading researchers.

We engage in key issues, such as healthcare reform and strive to achieve the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes for the whole community.
This is our vision for tomorrow’s leaders in health.
