About the Faculty

The Faculty of Education and Health Sciences (EHS) is a rapidly growing Faculty that consists of three Schools (the Graduate Entry Medical School, the School of Education and the School of Allied Health) and three Departments (Nursing and Midwifery; Physical Education and Sport Sciences and Psychology).

The core mission of EHS is to advance the wellbeing of people by graduating effective and critically reflective scientists, education and healthcare professionals and creating and disseminating knowledge, through research and scholarship that impacts on the social, educational and healthcare needs of people locally, nationally and globally. 

This mission is underpinned by strong leadership and vision that focuses on the development of people, research excellence and impact. 

EHS has identified four priority research areas; Physical Activity and Human Performance, Social Inclusion, Professional Practise and Education, and Optimising Health. EHS has been to the forefront in developing and embedding a structured PhD programme at the University of Limerick, so we are now focusing our attention on developing our postdoctoral research talent through our Succeed and Lead Fellowship Programme.
