A unique teaching experience
BPP University School of Health brings together the practical skills and knowledge that you need to maximise your prospects as a healthcare professional.
Our unique teaching provides you with practice-focused qualifications that have an emphasis on patient-centred care. What's more, they are delivered by practitioner-tutors, as part of an engaging and interactive learning experience.
Practice focused philosophy
Good healthcare education has its roots in applied practice. That's why much of our teaching takes place in a real-life healthcare setting, such as a chiropractic clinic, hospital or nursing home, as well as in the classroom. Studying in a healthcare environment means you will not only learn new skills, but will also get the opportunity to apply them while demonstrating an awareness of patient-centred care.
BPP University School of Health works closely with a variety of healthcare professions and practitioners, as well as patients and carers, to ensure that our programmes continue to meet the needs of current employers and patients.
We also have strong links with many healthcare regulatory bodies: all our professional qualifications lead to regulatory body registration or are subject to approval.
