Health and Social Care

Health and Social Care

If you want to work in health or social care, we can help you gain the skills and qualifications to care for those with mental health needs, learning disabilities, the elderly and disabled, across a wide range of health and social care settings.

We structure your learning around your present or future employment, and we develop the content of our courses with close input from employers to keep in touch with industry needs.

Our health and social care courses are an excellent gateway into a variety of roles in care homes, residential homes, voluntary organisations, special schools and agencies providing domiciliary care.

If you want to be on the frontlines or make a difference to everyday life, why not consider a degree in Paramedic Science, Physiotherapy or Social Work?

We also offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Social Work and Child Protection and Adult Safeguarding.  

Why Study at Buckinghamshire New University?

At Buckinghamshire New University we understand it can be challenging to choose a course that feels right for you. That’s why we want to make you feel welcome as much as we possibly can.

We encourage you to think more deeply about the content on your course: reflect, learn and grow. We offer you a space to step outside of your routine and develop personally and professionally.

Health and social care at Buckinghamshire New University is not just about the working environment, it is also about the ethical and theoretical understanding of your role.

We can offer you a unique experience by providing a more friendly approach to student and lecturer collaboration, teaching, skills and feedback.
