Why choose this course?

With the guiding principles of equality and inclusion, The University of Wolverhampton delivers a course which encourages inclusive thinking and practice, social justice, participation, and empowerment through its integrative approach to health and wellbeing. Under the tutelage of a supportive teaching team experienced in health and social care roles, this curriculum sees ideas explored as early as your first year revisited cyclically, allowing you to apply an increasingly developed perspective to these issues as they in turn grow in complexity. Your base of knowledge throughout the course will be informed by citizen involvement, ensuring the incorporation of individuals, carers, families and communities in your education, as well as visiting and honorary lecturers from a wide range of health care and related fields. Local, national and international research initiatives undertaken by the University and its Institute of Health stress the importance of contemporary, real-world practice to this course, developing your existing and taught skills in preparation to enter a growing area of employment. The Foundation Year will accustom you to the lifestyle and expectations of University study, providing a groundwork of confidence and competency before progressing to the three year BSc (Hons) degree.
