Welcome from the Head of Department

I’d like to welcome you to the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York.

Whether you are looking for a career in nursing or midwifery, or in health research, a warm welcome awaits you from our team of dedicated staff and our current students.

It is an exciting time to be studying here – we were voted top department in England in the 2014 Guardian League table and our students have won Student Nursing Times awards for the last three years. Linked closely to our undergraduate teaching is our research which, in the most recent assessment of quality (REF 2014), was rated joint first for our research environment and 7th nationally in public health, health services and primary care.
