Health and Social Care



Health and Social Care is a popular choice with students and the course is available as 1, 2 or 3 A Level equivalent. This means you can choose to study the subject full time, or combine it as part of a wider study programme. Our students are all interested in helping others, and enjoy a fantastic range of opportunities including hearing from health professionals, work experience in the NHS and a range of extra curricular opportunities such as the chance to become an Ambassador, and volunteer at local charities and hospices.


Studying Health and Social Care at HNC is as interesting as it is diverse! There was an amazing variety of fascinating topics to discover, and in the second year you can specialise in either the health studies or the social care routes. I always knew that I wanted to be a Midwife and my teachers supported my goal from the start. I had the opportunity to work in a variety of healthcare settings, which allowed me to gain the valuable experience I needed alongside my qualification to progress to university.
