    This programme is designed for professionals from a social care, housing, health or nursing background who already have a qualification at diploma level and who wish to obtain a degree.

    All students start the programme at Level 6 (equivalent to the third year of a degree). The programme provides 120 academic credits.

    The programme would be particularly useful if you require a degree for career progression, especially if you are working or planning to work in community settings. The aim of the programme is for students to integrate theory and practice in their studies. The approach to study is based on sharing inter-professional learning.

    The programme comprises both core and option courses. Options are open to all students, regardless of practice background. Some involve assessed practice; others are purely academic.

    This programme does not enable you to qualify as a professional social worker. If you wish to do so, you should apply for the BA Hons Social Work programme.

    The aims of the programme are:

    • To develop specific knowledge and understanding related to the support of service users within a complex health and social care context
    • To develop an integrated knowledge base, enabling the student to select from contributing disciplines and philosophies and apply these to their area of interest/practice
    • To facilitate the experiences and knowledge of multi-professional and multi-agency teamwork and collaborative practice, including partnerships with service users and carers.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
