At the core of the School of Health Sciences’ ethos is our mission to ‘guide and mentor individuals through their personal and professional development and journey, through education, training, and research throughout all of our programmes’.
Across our UK-aligned programmes, our fundamental purpose is to promote professional evidence-based practices with intellectual curiosity in the field.
We specialise in delivering a high quality, personal learning experience through our small-sized cohorts, teaching approaches in class and through our virtual learning platform and in our simulation suite.
The University lecturing team as well as specialist practitioners, ensure that our programmes are evidence-based and current.
Most of our programmes include placement opportunities, and our students spend time in different settings within Gibraltar’s Health Care environment. The placements are undertaken in the practice setting through the University’s close partnership with the Gibraltar Health Authority and other health care providers.
