The first 4 are compulsory Units, and the second 4 are optional units chosen by staff.

An integral and compulsory part of the course is to attend a one week work placement within a Health and Social Care setting. The benefit of this is to give students the opportunity of practising the theoretical skills and knowledge gained on the course in a working environment. Students invariably return from this experience having a deeper understanding of the importance of some of the theoretical issues they are taught, and also often gives them a renewed sense of purpose in their studies.
