A career in health is much more than a job, it’s an extremely rewarding vocation that makes a real difference to the lives of others – so we are always delighted to hear that so many level 3 students are aspiring towards a career in the industry.

To help them to dig a little deeper into the role of a health care professional (including a Nurse, Mental Health Professional, Nursing Associate and Physiotherapist), we are hosting a series of exciting masterclasses which will explore the roles listed above within our on-site replica hospital ward.

These will run in January and June 2024, to enquire, please email with 'Health Masterclass' as the subject line.


Looking to explore why people think, feel and behave the way they do through studying a degree in Psychology? This masterclass will demonstrate how the course is designed to help you understand problems in the real world and how psychological knowledge can be applied to help us address them. Students will also discover how the study of psychological perspectives and theory will be different at degree level to what they may be currently studying.

This masterclass will be held on Thursday, 7 December, from 11am to 2pm at Moss House, University College Birmingham.
