If you have the ability but not the qualifications, this programme is your first step into a health and wellbeing degree. This programme is identical to the three year BSc Hons Health and Wellbeing degree, but includes a foundation year and a lower entry tariff.

Then you will maximise your abilities in a degree that critically analyses the importance of the biological, psychological, social, economic and cultural context surrounding individual and community health and wellbeing.
