Description

BSC (Hons) and Graduate Diploma

Developed in line with the Quality Assurance Agency’s framework for higher education in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (2001) and the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework and Development Review (2004), these courses are designed for health care professionals to continue their education and develop their skills to contribute to the changing health and social care system.

The courses are made up of two core modules, totalling 60 credits. The course enables a deeper understanding of the theory behind the health care practice, allowing students to make better informed, professional judgements in health care settings, resulting in confident, innovative clinical practitioners.

Course duration

Students are encouraged to complete their study in two years, studying 60 credits a year - which generally fits in easily with full-time employment. However, students wishing to study less credits per year are able to take up to four years to complete the course. Mode of attendance is determined by module selection.

 

Graduate Certificate

This will be awarded to students who complete a core module and obtain another 40 level three credits from modules of their own choice.

Entry Requirements

  • Applicants must have 120 credits at level two.
  • Please contact us on the number below to be put through to your relevant contact.

Speak Out Safely

The College of Human and Health Sciences supports the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign. This means we want every member of our staff and students to feel able to raise concerns about wrongdoing or poor practice when they see it and confident that their concerns will be addressed in a constructive way.

 

Speak out safely

 

We promise that where staff or students identify a genuine patient safety concern, we will support them, help them to ensure their concern is fully investigated and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give them feedback about how service providers have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible.

Whether you are a staff member, or a student, please speak up when you feel something is wrong. We want you to be able to Speak Out Safely.
