Alternative programmes for Health and Social Care applicants

As an applicant to Edge Hill University, we are very keen to support you in continuing your studies.

If you wish to pursue a career in health and social care or a related subject but have been unable to gain a place on one of our pre-registration degrees, you may want to consider one of our many alternative courses.

These alternative courses provide the gateway to a wide variety of future careers. They are designed to enhance your employability and equip you with real-world experience.

Four students walk in front of the Main Building at the front of the campus.

What to do next

  • Browse the links below that highlight the choice of programmes which we feel may be most relevant to you.
  • When you find a degree that you would like to study, you should check that you meet the entry criteria outlined on the course page. If you are unsure, you can contact us for advice and guidance on (+44) 01695 657143 or email [email protected].
  • If you wish to request consideration for an alternative degree, please complete our short online enquiry form.
Request consideration for an alternative degree

We can only consider you for one alternative course at a time so you will need to choose your preference carefully before completing the online enquiry form. We also recommend that you submit an amended personal statement. You may wish to prepare your amended statement in Microsoft Word before cutting and pasting it into the form.

You do not need to do anything through UCAS at this stage (we will advise you at a later date as and when any action is required).

Please be aware that we are unable to consider you for any programme that you have been unsuccessful in applying for earlier in the current application cycle. Pre-registration courses in Midwifery, Nursing, Nursing and Social Work, Operating Department Practice and Paramedic Practice are not available through this process.
