Course summary


This programme is aimed particularly at healthcare assistants and care workers, and is designed to offer flexible study so that it is suitable if you are already in work.

It has been designed in conjunction with local employers (the Primary Care Trusts and the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital Trust) and is an ideal first level HE qualification for healthcare workers in both the public and private sector.

All of City College Norwich’s Degree programmes are validated by the UEA, meaning that the quality of the awards you get is assured by a world renowned Higher Education organisation.

This course will be delivered through workshops, lectures, presentations, seminars and group activities.

The emphasis on skills for work means that this is a truly vocational programme and will enable you to both ground your learning in the workplace as well as reflect on work practice in an academic context. Students in employment will be expected to receive practical and enabling support from their employers.


Your work will be assessed via a range of assessment methods for instance assignments, open book exams, essays, case studies, portfolio and reports.


FdSc graduates may progress to an Honours degree programme, with articulated progression routes within City College including BSc (Hons) Health Studies, BA (Hons) Integrated Health and Social Care.

Career Progression

This increasingly well-recognised qualification will help you to find employment in the health and care sectors or, if you are in work, will enhance your ability to contribute effectively to your organisation.
