Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Integrative Healthcare is the only course of its kind in Scotland and has been developed in consultation with industry to closely reflect the changing requirements of the healthcare sector in the UK and abroad. Healthcare practitioners face ever more challenges that require new and innovative approaches to addressing the healthcare needs of 21st century clients; increasingly, additional or alternative methods of care, such as complementary therapies, are being considered. In this course, you will develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of complementary therapies, research and healthcare, while enhancing your analytical, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. A critical awareness of current issues and developments in complementary therapies will also form part of the programme. Throughout the degree, there is an emphasis on the wide range of diverse and complex perspectives of health, particularly social policy, ethics, the law, politics, physiology and sociology. As you progress through the programme, your learning will become more self-directed: years three and four will be fully-online, with attendance only required for a two-day induction in each of the years. Two virtual residentials will also take place in years three and four, one per semester each year. An online induction programme will be available prior to the start of each of the four years to help you get the most from your studies. This will allow you the flexibility to study from your own location.
