Health and Social Care
Students should have one of the following: a 2nd class honours degree (2.2) or equivalent in any subject, or a relevant professional qualification and/or substantial experience in a relevant field of practice. Non-standard entry qualifications will be considered. If English is not your first language you will also need IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent).
This programme allows students to commence their studies by taking just 1 20 credit stand-alone module; alternatively, students may prefer to apply for a postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma or master's degree; it is possible to build their qualification on a step-by-step basis; for example, students may complete a stand-alone module and then apply for 1 of the higher awards - the 20 academic credits students gained on the stand-alone module can then be counted towards that higher award; similarly, students may complete the postgraduate certificate before choosing to carry on to postgraduate diploma or MSc level; this flexible approach is popular with students; an additional attraction is that students may take 1 module at undergraduate level and count those credits towards their postgraduate award; this option is particularly helpful if students have not studied for some time as the undergraduate module help students remember their study skills and ease students more gently into higher level study; to gain the postgraduate certificate students need to accumulate a total of 60 credits; 120 credits for the postgraduate diploma and 180 credits for the MSc; these credits should be at level HE7 (master's level), although as explained above students may count 1 20 credit module at level HE6 (undergraduate level) towards their postgraduate award.
