Health and social care workers offer a vital service to the UK - their contribution to the health service is invaluable.
Our top-up degree is designed for professionals from a social care, housing, health or nursing background who already have a qualification at diploma level and wish to obtain a degree. If you are working or planning to work in community settings and require a health and social care degree for career progression, this is the programme for you.
You will develop specific knowledge and understanding on complex health and social care issues, so you can give the best support to service users. We have well-equipped facilities to support all your activities and employ creative teaching methods and assessment techniques.
Our lecturers, who are experts in the field of health and social care, will provide you with an integrated knowledge base. You will draw from contributing disciplines and philosophies and apply these to your areas of practice and interest. Our degree provides you with experience and knowledge of multi-professional and multi-agency teamwork. We are strong supporters of collaborative practice and we have strong partnerships with service users and carers.
Throughout the year you will integrate both theory and practice. Our approach is based on inter-professional learning where you will study alongside other professions, learning with, from and about one another. This, we find, improves collaboration and the quality of care.
We pride ourselves on combining high-quality teaching with world-class research and a vibrant student experience. This is why we are consistently rated highly in the National Student Survey. You will start the programme at Level 6 (equivalent to the third year of a degree) and it will provide 120 academic credits.
