Aims and objectives

The health and social care environment is constantly changing and evolving. This means that practitioners must continually adapt and develop their skills to meet the complex and dynamic needs of service users. The aim of the programme is to facilitate the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of complex bodies of theory enabling the practitioner to undertake their role with autonomy and accountability.

The programme also aims to enable the practitioner to critically apply evidence to their practice, to examine the impact of both political and social context in relation to the provision of healthcare, and to fulfil their potential through fostering commitment to lifelong learning.

Core modules for the BSc Health Professional Studies are Research and Evidence Applied to Practice (20 credits) and Social and Health Policy (20 credits). A further 80 credits (most modules are worth 20 credits each, a few are worth 40 credits) can then be selected from the portfolio of modules offered by the Faculty.
