The course

BSc Health and Social Care with Integrated Foundation Year

This course is available to Home (UK) students and students from the EU who meet the English Language requirements.

Are you looking for a degree that will help you make a difference in society? That gives you a comprehensive and critical understanding of health and social care and helps building healthy and resilient communities for a sustainable future?

Our four-year BSc Health and Social Care with an Integrated Foundation Year is a thorough, skills-building course that will give you everything you need to start your career with confidence.

Our Foundation Year sets you up so that you’re ready to take on your degree - providing you with opportunities to gain knowledge and understanding of how to get started with this fascinating subject at university. All Foundation Year students take foundation course modules around health and social care, culture, global challenges and mathematics and once you have completed your foundation year, you will normally progress onto the three year BSc Health and Social Care.

Studying our new interdisciplinary BSc Health and Social Care means that you will learn from leading experts from within sociology, social policy, social work and health who will share their research and experience so that you gain invaluable skills to help you understand individuals, communities and their key public health and social care issues.

The degree will help you to take a broad view of these issues and explore them from a range of different perspectives. It will introduce you to understanding society and people in society and provides training in core areas within health and social care. Short placements will be available once you’ve finished your foundation year, for the next two years, and a small group-based community research and innovation project is included in your final year.

• You will benefit from academic study combined with vocational training – integrated work-based learning opportunities

• Combine a solid theoretical grounding with a vocational strand to maximise your future opportunities whether you are considering a professional career or further study

• Gain critical thinking skills which will help you analyse and understand issues pervading the study of health and social care

• Gain practical skills in evaluation and research

From time to time, we make changes to our courses to improve the student and learning experience. If we make a significant change to your chosen course, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.
