Health and Social Care

Course summary

Through this exciting undergraduate degree, you will explore three core themes: Adult Health and Social Care, Child Health and Social Care, and Global issues in Health and Social Care. You will be taught by expert lecturers who are actively involved in cutting edge research in the field, meaning that you will stay up to date with key ideas and practices that shape the health and social care sector. You will also hear from a variety of guest speakers from the sector including Health and Social Care Wales. At Level 5, you will gain a highly regarded Level 5 Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) qualification, and take part in work-based learning, giving you valuable real-world experience of the health and social care sector. Placement settings include local and central government, third sector organisations, the NHS, drug and alcohol services and the St John Ambulance. At Level 6, our innovative social entrepreneurship module, provides an opportunity for you to propose an intervention to address a pressing health and social care issue, giving you the tools you need to create positive change in the sector. There is a strong emphasis on creative research methods in each year of study, so you understand the connection between health and social care industry discoveries, leading to research, and subsequent government funded policies. This fully prepares you for an academic research poster exhibition and your dissertation on a relevant topic of your choosing in your final year. On completion, the Health and Social Care degree at Cardiff Met will open up a wide range of career paths including working in the voluntary, charitable and private sectors.
