The healthcare industry plays a crucial role in supporting the economy by maintaining the physical and mental health of the wider workforce. And it's growing: it's anticipated that around two million people will need to be trained and recruited before 2022.
Today’s health and social care organisations are exciting, complex and varied, therefore, successful practitioners require innovation and resilience. Our course will offer you opportunities to use real-life case studies which draw on skills such as prioritisation, negotiation and care planning.
Employers from the health and social care sector have been directly involved in the design and development of this course. Together, we explore the skill sets that employers are most interested in, and constantly ensure they are embedded within the course. Our lecturers also bring significant industry experience to their roles.

Studying during COVID-19
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic all our students can choose to study face to face on campus or online only, and students are able to change their mode of delivery at given dates throughout the trimester.
For on campus teaching, we offer at least four hours of face to face teaching-related contact time per week for our undergraduate full-time programmes, supported by online learning using our established online learning systems. The number of contact hours varies course by course, and you can contact us for further information. The provision offered is subject to change due to the possibility of further Government restrictions, however the University remains committed to delivering face to face teaching and ensuring a COVID-19 secure environment.
In the event that there are further changes to the current restrictions that are in place within the UK due to the pandemic, we may need to move some courses online only at short notice to remain in line with Government guidelines and ensure the continued safety of our students and staff.
