Our Health and Social Care Top-up Degree reflects the changing requirements of those working in the health and social care sector. You’ll combine academic study with practical application, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of health and social care.
Building on your existing health and social knowledge and insight, you’ll work towards a higher level of practice identifying a personal specialism. You’ll study emerging legislation, exploring the impact of this upon the sector. You’ll also refine your practice, shape your learning through research, and complete a dissertation.
We place a heavy emphasis on employability so you’ll apply your acquired knowledge in a practical context. Full-time students will attend a work placement 10 to 12 hours a week alongside studies, ensuring the best chance of success in the health and social care sector.
