About us

The University of Manchester is among top ten universities in the world to study nursing (QS World University Rankings 2016).

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work was the first institution to offer a nursing degree in England and currently provides undergraduate and postgraduate education to more than 2,000 students.

We are home to the UK Centre for the History of Nursing and have a national and international reputation for teaching and research across nursing, midwifery, social work and related disciplines, working in close collaboration with the NHS.

As a School, we are committed to conducting high-quality applied research that provides evidence to improve patient care and shape policy and practice in health and social care.
