Faculty Of Health Sciences

Welcome message

The Faculty of Health Sciences is committed to creating proficient health care professionals through superior teaching, learning, research, and community engagement activities. This is to serve the health needs of our dynamic society.

The faculty has a limited intake that allows for mutual, strong relationships among the fellow students, departments, and the entire faculty.

All the degree programmes offered are accredited by their respective professional bodies, such as the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), South African Nursing Council and the South African Pharmacy Council. These bodies constantly evaluate the programmes in a five-year cycle to ensure that students receive a quality education and training in health sciences.

This faculty is the smallest component on the University’s structure with two schools, School of Medicine, and School of Health Care Sciences. Nonetheless, we pride ourselves on the variety of job opportunities that exist for our graduates in the areas of pharmacy, nursing, optometry, dietetics, and medical sciences as well as medical practice.

We look forward to welcoming you as we find “Health Solutions for Africa”.


In contributing to the University of Limpopo’s endeavour to be a leading African university, the Faculty strives to be the premier Faculty in the university that brings the university closer to its vision.
