This degree provides you with the strongest possible foundation for a career. It’s designed for students who know they want to work in health and social care or a related sector, but haven’t decided on a specialism yet. Our graduates are passionate about helping people. They go into nursing, midwifery, occupational therapy, speech therapy, management, research and education. The third year includes a work placement that could be in a clinical setting such as an A&E department. Or you may choose a placement in management, public health or social care. Sheffield also offers you the opportunity to spend three or four months studying health and social care issues at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
