If you have the ability to study our BA (Hons) Health and Social Care but aren’t quite ready to embark on the three-year degree, the Foundation Year is the ideal starting point. You gain a solid introduction to the subject, plus the confidence and experience to make a positive difference to people’s wellbeing.

The Foundation Year is your stepping stone to a worthwhile future helping people live more independent, active and healthy lives. With the chance to apply your knowledge to real work situations, completion of the Foundation Year course leads on to the full BA (Hons) Health and Social Care. Offering a thorough grounding in topics like sociology, social policy and psychology, the Foundation Year enables you to make a smooth transition to honours level studies. On graduation, you will be equipped to plan and deliver effective health and social care services.
