Course summary

The Health & Wellbeing Practice with Foundation Year BA (Hons) course aims to provide you with a solid grounding for building a career in health-related disciplines. The strength of the course lies in preparing students, who are unable to follow the more traditional route onto a degree course in health & wellbeing. The foundation - year one focuses on core skills required for academic progression, alongside equipping you with the principles of foundation topics taught on many of our degree courses. In addition, we will also make sure you are fully prepared to undertake a degree within public health by teaching you key skills, such as research methods, scientific fundamentals and promotion techniques. Students who successfully complete their foundation - year one will then progress onto the Health & Wellbeing Practice BA (Hons). The Health & Wellbeing Practice BA (Hons) degree part of the course has been developed to provide a range of practitioners to work within the public, private and third sectors, with groups and individuals in roles that are inter-professional, and multi-disciplinary. The course is designed to be broad based and focuses on a number of related areas of work that are pivotal in supporting people within organisations and communities. The curriculum provides students the opportunity to acquire a deep understanding of how health and wellbeing practices operate to shape policies, procedures and processes in workplace settings. This aims to be an engaging, values-led degree course and therefore provides students with the chance to gain the skills and holistic understanding needed to work effectively in multidisciplinary, and community-based work settings upon successful completion of the course.
