Support for New and Current Students
How many UCAS points are required for Health and Social Care courses?
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.
Health and Social Care (apprenticeship route) require 40 UCAS points, (BSc) Health and Social Care require 96 UCAS points, (FdA) Health and Social Care requires 64 UCAS points, (HND) Health and Social Care requires 64 UCAS points, and (BSc with foundation year) Health and Social Care requires 48 UCAS points. Some routes have part-time options, and are detailed on the specific Health and Social Care course page within the subject area, along with specific entry requirements for each course.
You should have a keen interest in Health and Social Care topics, helping others, caring and attention to detail. Depending on your qualifications and experience we may consider your application without the exact UCAS tariff points if you have considerable experience in this area, or an appropriate course will be advised by the Health and Social Care Team.
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.
