    Salidas profesionales

    Studying health and social care at university is ideal for individuals who see health and social care as an attractive career pathway but do not wish to pursue professional careers in medicine, nursing or social work.

    The degree is excellent preparation for students seeking administrative, managerial type roles within health and social care. It would also be highly relevant in the voluntary and independent sectors and to major charitable organisations with either a health or social care focus.

    Within health and social care services there are recognised career pathways and the NHS has a national pay structure linked to a framework of knowledge and skills to support professional, personal and career development.
