School of Allied Health, Social Work and Wellbeing

There are diverse range of courses within Edge Hill University’s applied health, social care and social work portfolio. Courses draw on a wide knowledge base of subjects and specialisms, traditional and contemporary, related to health and wellbeing and social care provision.

Two people are talking whilst sat at a table. There is a coloured wall behind them with various food and drinks on. There is a blue teapot on the table in front of the people. They are both looking at each other, smiling.

This involves the inclusion and application of such disciplines as public health and wellbeing, counselling, psychology and sociology, the behavioural sciences as well as ethics and law.

Throughout all our applied health and social care programmes, close alignment with the world of work and application to potential future employment is made, including the provision of placement opportunities.  The programmes have been developed by blending disciplines, resulting in an academic portfolio whose synchronicity with the work place ensures cutting-edge provision.

An applied health and social care programme will enable you to consider specific subjects whilst gaining the key transferable graduate skills essential to broaden your education and enhance your employability.

As a student on our social work undergraduate or postgraduate courses you can access a number of benefits from our partnership with the Association of Child Protection Professionals (AoCPP). These benefits will include access to AoCPP learning events and special interest groups for Edge Hill students. The aim of the partnership is to improve the skills and knowledge of those working in child protection and safeguarding.
