What makes a healthy population? According to current UK policy, it's about the joined-up delivery of health and social care services that are driven primarily by the needs of patients and communities.

To meet the demand for skilled professionals in this growing area of provision, we've designed this degree in partnership with leading health and social care employers. You'll be at the forefront of learning and professional practice in health and social care, developing the knowledge, understanding and skills to shape the future health of our populations.

We'll give you a solid grounding in individualised health and care provision, exploring models of person-centred provision and the impact of behaviours on health. You'll learn how to manage in health and care, understanding the factors that influence health decision-making.

You'll explore contemporary health and social care delivery frameworks and structures, discovering how to appraise the effectiveness of joined-up approaches to service delivery. You'll learn from internationally active researchers who are committed to your personal and professional development, along with helping you to develop the academic skills you'll need for evidence-based practice and future research.

You'll gain practical experience by completing two professional work placements in the UK or abroad, and you'll also have the opportunity to study abroad at one of our international partner universities.

Placement opportunities
​We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You'll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months' professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. Our students can undertake placements in facilities that provide residential care for adults and older adults, with youth work teams, in the NHS, in children's and family centres, and with charities and non-government agencies.

Graduate opportunities
You'll be well-prepared to work in a variety of roles within health and social care provision. You could work as a children's services project worker, a lifestyle and wellbeing co-ordinator within care facilities, a children and family support worker, a community wellbeing worker, a health improvement specialist or a social work assistant, to name just a few.
