On behalf of the Schools of Applied Sciences and Human and Health Sciences, we would like to invite you to take part in our 13th series of Public Lectures covering exciting advances in science, social sciences, and health.

Applied Sciences on the University site goes back nearly 200 years to the Huddersfield Scientific and Mechanics Institute, which instructed local tradesman and engineers on scientific principles relating to their professions. Since then the University has grown in size and prestige. Today, within the School of Applied Sciences our academic expertise covers a wide range of topics in Chemistry, Biology, Pharmacy, Optometry, Geography, Chemical Engineering and Forensic Science. In School of Human and Health Sciences academic and practice expertise incorporates Psychology, Nursing, Midwifery, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Operating Department Practice, Sports, Nutrition & Exercise Science, Podiatry, Social Work, Health and Social Care, Criminology, Politics and Sociology.

Our Public Lectures are free and open to all. Our aim is for you to hear some of the leaders in their fields, from both The University of Huddersfield and from the wider research community. We hope you are able to take these opportunities to find out more about the research that is being carried out.
