For those undertaking the BSc (Hons) degree option, there is also the opportunity to negotiate an endorsement for your award which reflects what you do in practice. This is explained to you during the core module Foundations for Practice, and your Personal Academic Tutor will guide you through managing the formal process of gaining approval.
What if I wish to increase my knowledge in specific areas of practice?
Any of the modules within the programme can be taken as a 'stand-alone/freestanding' module. One of the most commonly accessed in this format, in order to attain specialist knowledge/qualification, includes the Mentoring and Facilitation of Learning module.
For further information, please contact the Programme Administration team on firstname.lastname@example.org or via 01227 782418.
We also link with other specialist programmes for specific modules, such as the BSc (Hons) Health Studies / Health Promotion / Public Health. Information regarding these modules can be accessed within the timetable.
What if I have a degree but do not feel confident to move onto MSc studies?
There are further study options for students who already hold a health and social care degree. These are the Graduate Certificate and the Graduate Diploma.
If you undertake two or three modules which hold a 60 credit equivalent rating, you can be awarded a Graduate Certificate.
If you undertake modules which hold a 120 credit equivalent rating, you can be awarded a Graduate Diploma.
You can undertake a single 20 credit module which may, in the future, be used to exempt you from one optional module in the MSc programme. Please email email@example.com for support and guidance before considering this option.
