You will gain a clear understanding of the structures and policies underpinning health and social care in the UK and develop excellent communication, research and analytical skills that are highly valued by employers.

This course is aimed at improving integration between the sectors and preparing you for a career working across traditional organisational and professional boundaries. Students also have the opportunity to take part in two-week, college specific international summer programmes.
