Why choose BSMS?
Clinical and professional combined
All our clinical courses include professional modules as standard, ensuring that students develop the skills and knowledge to meet the challenges of a changing health and social care sector.
Strong multidisciplinary learning
Our courses bring together a vibrant mix of professionals from a variety of health and social care backgrounds. As a result, students gain valuable insights into other disciplines, leading to stronger team working – and, ultimately, to better patient care.
Responding to changing healthcare needs
We tailor our courses to reflect the current changes taking place within the wider healthcare environment, including the NHS, local authorities and independent or third sector providers delivering or planning services.
Nationally and globally relevant
Our courses are delivered by high-level practitioners, who base their teaching on the latest research and case studies. Prominent guest lecturers add to the student experience. This ensures the knowledge is relevant and translatable to both national and international healthcare settings.
For those based in southern England, our course content draws on regional experience with local professionals delivering the course, using relevant research and case studies that are directly applicable to the regional health sector.
Benefit of two universities and local NHS trusts
BSMS is a partnership between the Universities of Sussex and Brighton with local NHS providers, and all courses are validated by both universities. Each has a strong reputation in medical and healthcare teaching and research. Some clinical courses also take place in NHS trusts which work closely with both universities.
Conveniently located with excellent transport links
BSMS is just over an hour from London, and 45 minutes from Gatwick Airport. Most courses are delivered at the main campus at Falmer or at nearby NHS centres. The vibrant city and seafront of Brighton are just four miles away.
