The Faculty of Health and Social Care has a long history at University of Chester, being established in the early 1990s as the School of Nursing and Midwifery. Since then, it has enjoyed a successful track record, and in 2004/05, expanded its provision into new areas of education for nursing and social work.
The Faculty of Health and Social Care is the major provider of pre-registration nursing and midwifery education across Cheshire and the Wirral. It also offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes for nurses, midwives and other health care professionals.
Social work programmes at undergraduate level are offered at the Warrington campus.
The Faculty offers al branches: Adult, Child Health, Learning Disability, Mental Health, and Midwifery. For DipHE students there are three intakes a year – February, June and September. For degree students, there is an annual intake in September. There is an annual midwifery intake in September (DipHE and BSc).
All programmes are offered on the main Chester campus, Warrington campus and Bache Hall. They are also offered at dedicated Education Centres on the following Trust sites.

Mid Cheshire (Leighton)
Wherever possible, our aim is to offer local delivery tailored to the needs of the student and the Trust. Students can choose to register on a full programme of study, or to access modules on a stand-alone basis. Delivery of these modules is flexible to suit all learning styles. The use of a work-based learning approach for delivery is one that is actively used within the Faculty.
