The BSc in Health and Well-being is designed to provide you with a unique inter-disciplinary learning experience related to wider aspects of health and wellbeing including public health, leadership and management and quality improvement. This degree enables students to develop a critical understanding of all the key elements that influence the provision of services that lead to health and well-being. Students will examine local, national and international policy relating to health and well-being and develop skills to critically appraise the evidence used to support policy development. It will enable you to explore how legislation, policy, public health measures, leadership and quality improvement come together to enable transformations in services for individuals and communities. The BSc has good fit with the principles of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 and the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
In your Final Year, you can tailor your programme of study to suit your emerging interests by selecting the modules that best suit your future employment plans and focus on public health, health promotion or quality and leadership. An applied element to the course in the form of a work placement in the voluntary sector in Year 2 and 3 will enable students to link the academic content of the course to the realities of implementing health and well-being in the real life setting and help students’ foster organisational relationships that will support future employability.
