What our students think

I was reluctant to study a full degree, but having studied on the Foundation degree in Health & Social Care I am now confident that I can handle the demands of a full degree

The course has enabled me to examine what I do at work in more detail – this has helped me to improve my work, increase my confidence and develop my knowledge and has benefited the care home I work for.

Career path

Many students who undertake the Foundation Degree may be currently employed in areas of health or social care – however, those who aren’t could find work in residential care, community care and health promotion in the community and schools.

Following successful completion, you could progress to the BA (Hons) Health Studies, or another related Honours degree.

  • Demonstrate competence in the academic, information and communication technology skills required to be effective members of the health and social care workforce.
  • Use knowledge of social, community and individual aspects of health and social care in an applied way in the workplace setting.
  • Analyse and interpret relevant evidence to inform your practice in health and social care.
