This innovative programme aims to provide students with insight into the wider context of health and wellbeing, a subject which is now firmly on the health agenda. Graduates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the range of skills and competencies associated with the scientific study of this subject.
They will also be able to analyse the importance of the biological, psychological, social, economic and cultural context surrounding individual and community health and wellbeing. The implications of local, national and international policies for the health and wellbeing of individuals and groups are examined and strategies to promote individual, organisational and community health and wellbeing are considered.
Students appraise and use research and demonstrate their potential to contribute to the evidence base underpinning the study of health and wellbeing and acquire the skills to demonstrate graduate attributes for employment.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Applicants should have:
280 UCAS points
FROM a minimum of two subjects at A-level
OR a BTEC National Diploma
PLUS a minimum of three GCSEs at grade C or above (including English Language, mathematics or a science subject) or equivalent
OR an approved Access to Higher Education Diploma with a minimum of 60 credits, 45 of which must be at level 3 with the remaining 15 at either level 2 or 3 with mathematics and English to at least level 2. A minimum of 30 of the level 3 credits must be at Merit or Distinction level.
• Mature students with alternative qualifications are considered on an individual basis.
No work experience is required.
