Undergraduate Health and Social Care Degrees

Get ready to plan and deliver effective support to individuals, families, and communities in any area of health and social care with our degrees.

Our Health and Social care degree covers all aspects of health and social care. You'll understand life development from birth to older adult and how external factors such as the environment, culture, and policy influence this development.

You'll see how health and social care services work with each other to provide care, and how research is carried out in these settings. You'll also develop core skills relevant to all health and social care areas, such as record keeping, safeguarding, and how you can affect the communication of others.
