Level 5 Modules

The work for level five modules is of the same level as those studying in their second year at university.


To study at level 5, students need to have 120 credits at level one.


Please note: Students wishing to be awarded with a Diploma and/or to progress to level three studies will need to achieve 120 credits at level 5. For each of these purposes, the Research and Critical Appraisal module, or an equivalent, is a compulsory module.

Applicants employed by Hywel Dda Health Board or Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board, who wish to receive financial assistance and/or study leave to attend courses, are advised to contact their managers before applying.

If you don’t have a professional qualification and are not sure if you have the necessary credit points to study your chosen module, please email Mr Gareth Davies, Academic Services Officer on chhsadmissions@swansea.ac.uk to check your status.

*We don’t offer any study skills courses but recommend you contact your local Further Education College, who will usually offer appropriate courses. However, if you live within the vicinity of Swansea, the Department of Adult Continuing Education at Swansea University offers a course which meets the requirements for study at level two. For further information please contact adult.education@swansea.ac.uk or +44 (0)1792 602211

Overseas Academic Qualifications

Applicants applying for all programmes will need to submit copies of their certificates and transcripts from their awarding country and university so that UK comparability can be established. This will allow us to advise overseas and international students what level of study would be appropriate. These should be submitted to our admissions department at time of application.
