About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2020

Health and social care is all about supporting people; working flexibly and creatively to accommodate the increasingly complex needs of individuals, families and communities. If you’re interested in helping to plan and deliver health and social care services then this course is for you.

Many people are presenting longer-term and more complex needs. This all requires new roles and new ways of working so health and social care services providers can respond flexibly to the needs of the people using services, their families and carers.

Designed in partnership with key service providers and commissioners organisations, the BA (Hons) Health and Social Care degree develops the health and social care workers of the future. Covering health and care policy and trends, social and psychological approaches to care and health as well as the critical issues in adult and children’s care, you will also apply your learning throughout your studies on work placements.

On completing your degree you will be fully prepared to be able to make a positive impact on the delivery of services, changes in policy and practice at an individual, family and societal level.

You'll be taught in several ways, including small group discussions, practical activities and lectures. You'll also go on placements in a variety of practice settings in your third year to give you a flavour of the different environments you can work in when you graduate. And you'll have the chance to put the theory you've learned into practice.

Modules

Managing People, Services and Resources; Practice Based Learning (Double Module); Resourcing and Social Enterprise in Health & Social Care Organisations; Independent Study (Double Module).

Assessment methods

You will be assessed on your coursework, including your reports, essays, presentations and skills assessments. You will not have to take any exams. You will be allocated a tutor who will give you one to one support for your personal and professional development.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
