Careers in health and social care

We work in close collaboration with employers to ensure that our courses are both current and fit for purpose. Specifically we work with the NHS, County Councils and a range of voluntary and private sector employers.  

Our graduates have gone on to work in a range of settings. Nursing and Midwifery are our key strengths, but many of our graduates have gone on to be successful as paramedics, social workers, counsellors, psychologists and youth workers. Many have also used their qualification as the foundation for a career outside the sector, or as a basis for further study.
