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.
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 after 31 July 2022.
From 1 August 2022, the School of Nursing and School of Education, Midwifery and Social Work, which run the Kingston University programmes offered through the joint Faculty agreement, will come together with Kingston University's School of Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry to form a new Faculty of Health, Science, Social Care and Education.
At the same time, the Centre for Allied Health, which runs courses in physiotherapy, undergraduate radiography, paramedic science and occupational therapy that are validated by St George's, University of London, will become part of St George's Institute of Medical and Biomedical Education.
Most teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate courses will continue as usual and students should notice very little change on a practical level. As is presently the case, new students will continue to be registered with the University – either Kingston University or St George's, University of London – that is responsible for awarding their degree.
The only exception is in the case of our workforce development portfolio, where there will be changes to delivery arrangements for some programmes and modules. We have written to the students, employers and partner providers involved in this activity to keep them updated.
Kingston and St George's is a leading provider of workforce development modules, study days and degrees for practicing social workers and healthcare professionals.
