Why Study Nursing, Health Sciences and Social Care? The Department of Nursing, Health Sciences and Social Care provides a range of programmes in Nursing, Applied Social Care, Early Childhood Education and Care and Community Development and Youth Work. The programmes offered are hugely successful and attract students who wish to work in caring and supportive areas of life. Combining academic study with hands-on practical experience, our programmes are delivered in a supportive learning environment both on campus and in placement sites. The programmes rely on the skills and expertise of those who work within the placement sites. While on placement you will get to meet people from all walks of life and will learn the skills needed to provide support, sometimes at the most vulnerable times in their lives. These are challenging yet very rewarding careers.
