Health Care Studies

Our FdA in Health Care Studies is your chance to achieve a firm foundation of knowledge and experience in contemporary healthcare practices and methods. We offer a range of practical and work-based learning experiences designed to prepare your for employment and further training in the healthcare sector. This course is a golden opportunity to develop the intellectual, personal and practical skills so sought-after by employers in the healthcare industries. You’ll have the chance to develop and enhance your understanding of the principles of care, along with the legal and ethical issues associated with social policy and working in the healthcare industries. Along the way, our expert team will introduce you to theories and concepts in psychology, and help you explore anatomy and physiology. We’ll also encourage you to study cases where you can apply your learning, and benefit from our strong emphasis on improving the quality of care delivery within the healthcare sector. With a flexible, open-minded and analytical approach to studying, and to the issues raised during your studies, you should be primed to make significant progress towards your goals. Getting out of the classroom and into the workplace is a key part of your learning, so a dedicated work placement forms part of the course, in which you’ll be encouraged to immerse yourself as a volunteer in a health and social care environment.
