The School of Health and Life Sciences was established in 2011, following the merger of the School of Health and the School of Life Sciences. By bringing Health, Nursing and Social Care disciplines together with Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Psychology and Vision Sciences, the school is one of the largest providers of health care and life science education in Scotland.
