Students engage in group discussion during a seminar.

Drawing on a broad knowledge base of insights and specialisms, both traditional and contemporary, our health and social care degrees immerse you in a variety of aspects of health, wellbeing and behaviour.

You can train in counselling, specialise in mental health practice or child and adolescent mental health, analyse offending behaviour, gain expertise in nutrition, or prepare for a leadership and management role in health and social care.

On successful completion of your course, you will have the skills and knowledge required for an exciting career planning and delivering effective support to individuals, families and communities. A range of professional development courses for existing health and social care practitioners are also available.
