Get ready to make a real difference to the daily lives of vulnerable people by studying our Health and Social Care degree. Offering excellent facilities and an extensive range of work placements, we’re dedicated to helping you gain the skills, knowledge and understanding you’ll need for a rewarding career in this essential sector.

Health and social care is a vast service sector providing support to people who are vulnerable, such as children, older people and adults with disabilities or mental health issues. Our BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care offers you the opportunity to develop the values, skills and knowledge essential to good health and social care practice, opening the door to a huge range of rewarding employment opportunities.

Balancing policy, practice and academic training, our course is strongly linked to the UK government’s agendas for health and social care. Our highly experienced and dedicated team will lead you in an exploration of the principles of care, care planning and delivery, the ethical aspects of care, and areas such health promotion, safeguarding, and more. We’ll support you as you learn how to collaborate across professional boundaries, use evidence to inform your decisions, and gain understanding of critical issues in health and social care and ways of dealing with them.

Practical experience, including a work experience placement in a health and social care setting, is key to your development. Our focus is on helping you become a knowledgeable, compassionate, and person-centred care professional.
