The Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care is privileged to work with international students from a broad range of countries.
At MMU we understand the level of commitment made by international students who choose to come and study in the UK. Therefore, staff in our Faculty are all fully committed to providing excellent and supportive teaching and learning experiences for all our international students.
Why study with us?
Both our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are designed specifically to enhance your professional development. Through our close and positive relations with professional/regulatory bodies and with employers our courses focus on the bringing together of academic and practitioner skills and knowledge.
In order to enhance the future prospects of our graduates, our teaching methods are carefully designed and are centred on enhancing transferable skills for our students, covering everything from teamwork to in-depth research, and presentation skills to report writing. Teaching also draws heavily on academic staff individual research interests, which allows the Faculty to maintain a large portfolio of courses, often exploring cutting-edge issues.
Study Abroad and Exchanges
We welcome students from across the world to come and join us for short periods of study. We also encourage students who study in the Faculty to gain international experience in their own field of study.
Here at MMU we have a wealth of experience working with international partner institutions to develop education that meets the needs of an ever-changing world. Hence, in addition to hosting international students, the Faculty works with academic partners in a range of European countries including Greece, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Ireland, Finland and Lithuania. More globally, we are working on a diverse range of projects with colleagues in India, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Canada, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Uganda, Libya, New Zealand and Brazil.

Research, Knowledge Exchange and Enterprise
As a large and vibrant faculty, all our academic staff are involved in a research and knowledge exchange activity that informs learning and teaching. Staff in the faculty work closely with professional and regulatory bodies to ensure that our programmes reflect changes and innovations in their associated professional fields.
We also conduct and publish research at a regional, national and international level. This research leads to innovations in practice and knowledge in related professional fields.
