BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care

This programme enables students who have undergone the FdSc in Health and Social Care to develop and complete a full degree. The aims are to prepare students to engage with wider responsibilities and decision making in order to develop senior or leadership and management roles within the health care sector. Students are also encouraged to engage with contemporary health and social care policy and to critically engage with local, national and international drives. The programme aims to allow for students to effectively work collaboratively as a member of the multi-agency team and to understand professional and organisational boundaries. The course will reflect on student’s experience and previous learning whilst developing critical analysis and synthesis of information in order to study for their independent module.
