Organisation profile

The Faculty of Science and Health is the University's largest faculty, and offers an excellent research and innovation base through our professional and clinical practice.

We work in strategic partnership with Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust (PHT), which aims to make both the Trust and the University centres of excellence for collaborative education, training and innovation.

By supporting new capacity, projects and infrastructure, the partnership will also enable us to deliver excellent research that's relevant to local people – with a particular focus on the development and application of new healthcare technologies.

More than 60% of our research is world leading or internationally excellent (Research Excellence Framework 2014) and it delivers beneficial social, environmental or economic impact – like our research into developing environmental management tools to help the Ukraine better manage the Chernobyl exclusion zone.
