With increasing and ageing populations, a new approach to considering and delivering health and social care is being introduced across the country. This approach recognises that the complex and interrelated issues that individuals face regarding their own health and social care needs require a joined up and person centred response. This degree, which has been developed in consultation with major health and social care employers, embeds the principles of placing service users at the front and centre of their health and care. It aims to develop students’ skills, knowledge and behaviours for working in a complex, multi-agency framework, alongside developing their individual capacity and resilience for working in this field. The course is built around four key strands, which are individualised health and care provision, student personal and professional development, developing our students’ ability to manage in health and care, and finally building academic skills for evidence based practice and future research. Underpinning all of these is the opportunity to build practical experience through embedded work placements at every year of the degree. Graduates from this programme will be highly employable in the health and social care field, and prepared for further study as an alternative progression route. There are a number of international and study abroad opportunities. These include overseas work placements, as well as the option to study abroad during the second year of the course.
