Course Description

  • Health, Community and Social Care Studies achieved more than 90% overall satisfaction as rated by final-year undergraduate students in the 2018 National Student Survey
  • Our course empowers you to make a difference to people’s lives, particularly in vulnerable or marginalised groups

  • Learn from supportive and accessible lecturers who have experience of working in a wide range of services
  • Study a broad curriculum that can lead to a variety of potential career paths

Working with vulnerable or marginalised adults and children, helping people reach their full potential and supporting healthy lifestyles adds up to a challenging but very satisfying career. And with a rapidly ageing population and cuts to social care, there is a pressing need for support workers, particularly in the most deprived communities in the country.

With 1.5 million people employed in the social care sector alone — a figure projected to increase to 3.1 million by 2025 — employment prospects are excellent for those who want to make a difference in people’s lives and seek to promote social justice and tackle inequality.

Our Health, Community and Social Care Studies course focuses on the part we all play in making society and its systems fairer for all people. You explore a broad range of issues within health and social care with an emphasis on effective, collaborative work with those who use, design and shape services. Issues within different professional settings are expanded and linked to how practitioners can support people's needs in their communities.
