Course summary

Course description

Are you passionate about supporting children and families? Would you like a career where you can tackle issues such as health inequalities and poverty? Achieve your ambitions by studying on this exciting four year course which includes a foundation year and offers you the ideal preparation.

A good application/performance will be taken into account if you do not meet the criteria/offer conditions

  • Prepare for a fulfilling career in roles such as family support worker or community health worker
  • Engage with our enthusiastic and highly experienced teaching team who are dedicated to your success
  • Make the most of our exceptional learning facilities
  • The Foundation Year course leads on to the full BSc (Hons) Child and Family Health and Wellbeing degree.

Beginning with a foundation year

Starting at foundation level is ideal if it has been a while since you were in formal education; are planning a career change; would benefit from a more gradual introduction to university level study; or do not meet the entry requirements to join our three-year honours degree directly.

It gives you an insight into working in health and social care environments, as well as supporting you to develop the skills you need to achieve your goals.

Careers

Graduates from the full BSc (Hons) Child and Family Health and Wellbeing course will be ideally prepared for careers in:

  • Family Support
  • Health Promotion
  • Health Work in Schools
  • Community Work
  • Family Centres
  • Parenting Support
  • Childcare Teams
  • Targeted work with vulnerable families

You could also continue your studies to postgraduate level if you would like to specialise further. For example, you could consider one of our postgraduate courses in Nursing or our MA Social Work. If your interest lies in teaching, there are opportunities to progress to a PGCE too.

Ongoing careers support

Our Careers and Employment Service will provide you with help, guidance and support from day one of your course – and for up to three years after you’ve completed your studies.
