Course Summary

This is a four-year version of our popular BA (Hons) Health and Social Care course, with an integrated foundation year. Understand the key issues that affect health, social care and wellbeing. Make a difference to some of society's most vulnerable groups. Gain a well-respected qualification to open doors in the field. This course will provide you with a detailed understanding of health and social care policy and practice. You will study the key contemporary issues that influence health, social care and the wellbeing of individuals and communities, from a theoretical, policy and practical level. This course is taught via workshops, small group work, lectures, computer-based learning, presentations and independent learning. Your progress will be assessed with group projects/presentations, multiple choice questionnaires, and time-constrained tests. Throughout the degree you'll have one-to-one support from academic staff.

Health and social care is a diverse field, with opportunities to specialise in areas such as young people, mental health, or drug and alcohol abuse support. Academic qualifications in Health and Social Care allow you to work in the NHS, charities such as Age UK and MIND, social care organisations such as Turning Point, and other public, private and voluntary sector health agencies. Some careers, such as social work, nursing or occupational therapy, require additional academic and professional qualifications. When you have completed this Foundation Degree, you will have the opportunity to 'top up' to a BA (Hons) undergraduate degree.
