What we do
We’re a leading Scottish provider of professional and applied education and research programmes for both the allied health professions and sports and exercise science. One of the ways in which we differ from others is the practice-focused nature of the courses, with placement experiences embedded across all stages for allied health professions and stages one and two for applied sports and exercise science. Our graduates are fully equipped to tackle the challenges facing public health promoting wellness, self-management, prevention, enablement and empowerment, underpinned with core values of care, compassion, dignity, respect and professionalism. They are therefore ideally positioned meet the challenges of the workplace both now and in the future. We believe that immersing our students in real-life situations throughout their studies will give them the knowledge, skills, experience and confidence to change tomorrow. We pride ourselves on producing graduates who not only positively impact the lives of individuals but also have the ability to make a valuable contribution to the health of our society.
