Course summary

This Foundation Year will equip you with the fundamental knowledge and skills needed on your journey towards a successful career in the health sector.

Over the course of the year you'll study a range of subjects which will prepare you to progress to a degree in one of the many health related courses leading to Professional Accreditation. You'll gain knowledge in human biology and managing health conditions, you'll also have work-experience and simulated practice options, giving you the valuable hands-on practice required to progress to one of the Professionally Accredited courses such as Physiotherapy.

The Foundation Year will prepare you for a range of professional healthcare courses and not just one BSc degree. So, although you are studying a BSc in a specific course – Healthcare – the Foundation Year sets you up for several other possible degrees starting the following year. It may be that you don’t end up studying a degree in precisely the same subject as your Foundation Year.

This flexibility is one of the great things about the Foundation Year as it allows you to find out more about your interests and talents before focusing on a three-year degree. The Foundation Year also helps us make sure we help to match you to the degree that fits you best.

You'll be taught by expert staff and be guided at every step of your course, preparing you for your future employment options. Our supportive learning environment will allow you to develop the confidence and skills needed for success on your chosen degree.

This course is subject to programme approval.
