About us

Student nurse injecting dummy with needle

Nursing is well established at the University of Birmingham having been taught here, at the Medical School for over 20 years. As part of the Institute of Clinical Sciences, we have developed a reputation for excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, underpinned by a programme of health-related research.

We continuously develop our fourteen nursing programmes to meet the current demands of the healthcare system, ensuring that students graduate with the skill set, experience and knowledge to become effective patient-focussed healthcare professionals of the future.

We are proud of our partnership with seven NHS trusts, many of them country leading, and feel that our students benefit from the wide range of patient backgrounds they are exposed to on placements in the UK’s largest healthcare region.

Our research is cutting edge in the areas of Risk Abuse Violence (RAV) and End of Life Care. We have strong partnerships with the Universities of Bergen, Chicago Illinois, Hong Kong, La Trobe, Melbourne, Michigan, Ottawa, Tampere and others.
