Industry leading courses

Demand for expertise in all areas of health and wellbeing is high and in an ageing society likely only to increase which is why a degree in health and social care will put you on a secure and rewarding career path.

The original vocation, it offers many routes toward the practice and management of social care, nursing, and medicine. University Centre ǿմý offers a range of degree-level programmes to support the growing needs of this industry.

Access courses introduce social work and nursing concepts, and apprenticeships explore the subject in greater depth while working, offering a route toward practice management.

Foundation degrees and BSc programmes offer opportunities to qualify in health and social care generally or to specialise in childhood, early years, or adult nursing.

It’s an experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life and has opened up so many opportunities for me.
