Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education

The Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education is a joint enterprise of Kingston University and St George's, University of London, established in 1996.

This unique partnership provides a wide range of health, social care and education courses and training opportunities in London. We're proud to be playing a pivotal role in shaping the future workforce.

We offer courses in nursing, midwifery, paramedic science, radiography, rehabilitation sciences, social work, education and research; as well as a range of workforce development, modules and study days. We work with employers to ensure all students get the best possible practical experience in healthcare, social work and teaching - enabling them to prepare effectively for the workplace.

We encourage an interdisciplinary approach to teaching; bringing health, social care and education students together to learn from and with each other. We strive for excellence in education, preparing graduates for leadership roles, team-based and collaborative working.

Changes from 1 August 2022

Kingston University and St George's, University of London have agreed to structural changes that mean the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, jointly managed by the two institutions, will no longer continue in its current form from 1 August 2022.

There will be no changes to teaching or awarding of degrees for students currently undertaking any of the programmes offered through the existing Faculty run jointly by Kingston and St George's. There will, however, be a change to the university structure in which these courses are delivered.

From 1 August 2022, it is proposed that the School of Nursing and School of Education, Midwifery and Social Work, which run the Kingston University programmes offered through the joint Faculty, will move formally to Kingston University. They will join Kingston University's School of Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry to form a new Faculty.

As is presently the case, new students will be registered with the University – either Kingston University or St George's, University of London – that is responsible for awarding their degree.
