Course summary

The Health & Social Care with Foundation Year BA (Hons) course aims to provide you with a solid grounding for building a career in health and social care 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 and social care. Students who successfully complete their foundation – year one will then progress onto the Health & Social Care with BSc (Hons). The Health & Social Care BA (Hons) degree part of the course is composed of theoretical and practical learning modules that underpin the core concepts of healthcare. The content taught is relevant to both current health care practice and the changing context of healthcare delivery, while reinforcing the impact of care delivery on patients, their families, carers and the wider healthcare sector. The aim of the Health & Social Care BA (Hons) degree part of the course is to supply knowledgeable, enthusiastic and skilled individuals for employment and to support the delivery of health and social care within the NHS, Local Authority Services, private health provision, and third sector services.
