Health, Sport & Social Studies

There is increasing cross-over between social care and healthcare roles.

Employment potential and future career prospects are excellent.

There are a number of pathways you can study in the Health and Social Care Arena.

Health and Social Care: In response to demographic changes, including an ageing population, the growth in long term and chronic illnesses and the increased use of emergency healthcare, the sector has had to develop its services rapidly. Our programmes are designed to enable progression to a very broad range of health and social care related fields, including nursing, midwifery, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, social work, mental health, disability, elderly care and support and a whole range of university courses.

Meanwhile our Early Childhood Studies programmes are an excellent foundation for careers working with children and young people in many sectors including health, education and social care. These programmes offer opportunities for qualified, experienced practitioners and inexperienced applicants alike. There are two pathways for this programme.

In sport, we have a long-standing relationships with elite clubs and organisations and we use these contacts to ensure our students get real-world experience during their study.
