We're here Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm (please note we close at 3.30pm on the first and third Thursday of the month for staff training), and Friday 9am-4.30pm.

Health and medical science is an incredibly broad field, and there are lots of career paths you could follow. At ARU, we've got a course to fit your ambitions.

You might be interested in frontline healthcare. If that's the case, you can train as a paramedic, operating department practitioner or counsellor – or, at postgraduate level, a physician associate, mental health professional or surgical practitioner. Or perhaps it's healthcare management that interests you, in which case our MSc or MBA courses can help you fine-tune your leadership skills.

Alternatively, you can choose to focus on medical, biomedical or pharmaceutical science – developing your skills through hands-on research and lab experimentation.

As a student at ARU, you'll join one of two faculties. The Faculty of Science and Engineering trains biomedical scientists in our state-of-the-art Science Centre. Meanwhile, our Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care has been training healthcare professionals for more than 25 years, so you know you're in good hands.
