Health and Social Care

How many days of the week would I have lectures for a Health and Social Care course?

Traditionally, for BSc and HND you will be expected to attend lectures and workshops for 2 - 3 days each week, with independent study in the remaining time, or fieldwork depending on the year and schedule. If you are studying an Apprenticeship or FdA route then you will attend lectures or workshops 1 day each week, with independent study and fieldwork in the remaining time.

Please note that schedules and teaching methods may change to ensure your safety during COVID-19, for further details please contact a member of the Health and Social Care Team from the specific course.

Please note that (FdA) Health and Social Care applications are currently unavailable for international students due to visa restrictions, therefore, these applications can not be considered. Additionally, there are several Health and Social Care routes, some of which require you to be employed by an employer supporting the Higher Education Apprenticeship scheme, and who will sponsor your studies. Other routes, such as Undergraduate BSc and HND are accessible without these conditions, however, still have specific entry requirements and/or UCAS tariff points to gain admission.

For all the details on the specific Health and Social Care courses or if you have any other enquiries relating to this please visit the Health and Social Care subject area, you will also find contact details of the Health and Social Care Team if would like to speak to them directly.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
