    It is my great pleasure to introduce you to our prospectus of Postgraduate Taught courses available across the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry & Health at the University of Sheffield.

    We have developed an exciting portfolio of more than 40 courses for study in a wide range of clinical, public health and laboratory-based disciplines. Our postgraduate taught courses range from single modules for professional development, through to full Masters level programmes and our new MRes option, which allows students to spend a significant period of their programme engaged in practical, lab-based research.

    Postgraduate students in our faculty benefit from highly rated teaching and learning resources, with both ranking above 90% in the UK National Student Survey 2012. The Faculty has also recently invested 8M in buildings and student facilities, including the creation of an open-plan social learning hub, a sector-leading clinical skills centre and a new health sciences library. All postgraduate students in the Faculty benefit from our Graduate School, offering a central point of support to all postgraduate students across the Faculty.

    Employability is a key focus of our taught courses. We are intrinsically linked to the NHS and are proud of our extensive collaborations with health partners, providers and policy-makers regionally and nationally. Our industrial partners include Astra Zeneca, Danone, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline and P&G. Through the Sheffield Healthcare Gateway and the Industrial Knowledge Forge, we are working to connect students with industry to enhance their employability and to give them insight into industrial careers.

    If you are aiming to continue your studies to PhD level, we will give you the insight and guidance that you need to do so. Every year, we fund a number of scholarship places for Postgraduate Research study in our Faculty, including schemes for current Postgraduate Taught students.

    I hope that you find a course that ignites your interest in this prospectus, and join our work to improve lives by choosing to study at postgraduate level with us.
