About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2020

This top up degree will equip you with the knowledge and understanding, skills and attitudes required to become a responsive health and social care practitioner capable of demonstrating critically reflective evidence-based approaches to health and social care practice. It is hoped that by the end of the programme, you would have acquired the academic skills and professional expertise required for employment in a range of health and social care settings, e.g., healthcare, social care, housing, community development or Non-governmental organisations and the charity sector. The course will also equip you with the necessary skills to continue your education at postgraduate level.

Modules

During the course, you will learn about health and social care problems, the contexts within which they arise and consider ethical, multidisciplinary solutions to these problems. The course integrates theory and health and social care practice closely, allowing you to develop the knowledge and skills required for a successful career in this sector.

The modules you will study have been designed carefully to reflect current issues and emerging trends within the field of health and social care, therefore, some variation within the module content should be expected from year to year. The current modules in full are as follows:

The modules in full are:
• Health & Social Care Practice Dissertation (40 credits)
• Integrated Perspectives of Disease (20 credits)
• Current Issues in Health & Social Care (20 credits)
• Housing and Community Living (20 credits)
• Health & Social Care Practice (20 credits)

Please note that all the modules listed above are compulsory, none are optional.

Assessment methods

You will be assessed in a variety of ways, using a combination of coursework assignments and skills-based practical tasks. The methods of assessment include reports, case studies, presentations, portfolios, essays and one examination. The majority of the assessment is individual; however there are requirements within some modules for group activities. The aim of the course is that at the end of the year, you can demonstrate understanding of health and social care problems through evidence-based critical reflection.

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?
