Program description

Even if you lack the academic credentials to enroll in a typical undergraduate degree program, this program will help you launch a career in the health and social care sector by giving you the skills you need to advance to degree-level studies. The foundation year, which offers study skills and advice at every stage, is ideal if you need a little additional assistance as you begin your path to higher education.

The academic team supporting the programme's development and delivery includes directors at the NHS/IHSCM and digital health tech companies, as well as industry professionals with extensive expertise in the health and social care sector, ensuring that the course is shaped by the demands of the sector. This adds a wealth of professional knowledge to your education and gives you a variety of opportunities to practice and hone your talents.

Finally, you will be able to learn from real-world experiences and connect with industry experts thanks to guest speakers and live case studies through our connections with the NHS, IHSCM, and Skills for Care.
