How will I be taught and assessed?
The course uses flexible and diverse study methods including work related and self directed learning, lectures, seminars and tutorials.
You will also be required to use your work experiences (if in employment) or undertake a suitable placement (if not in employment) to underpin you learning. The course leader will arrange this with you and support you throughout. The minimum length of placement is three weeks in each year of study.
What are the entry requirements?
A typical offer will include GCSE Maths and English at grade C or above and a UCAS Tariff score of 40-56. This can be achieved by taking an NVQ Level 3 or BTEC Level 3 in Health and Social Care. If your application is successful, we'll invite you for an interview.
We welcome applications from mature students. You do not always need formal qualifications to apply, but will need to have an interview with the course leader.
Every application is considered on an individual basis.
