FAO for Students
This programme is approved by CORU
The BA Applied Social Care degree is designed to enable graduates to make the world a better place for everyone, by empowering and enabling people, and by correcting the social injustices that exist in today's society.
Our graduates understand the inherent structures of inequality and the impact they have on human rights and society in general. We ensure students have the capacity and skills they need to support and care for vulnerable, excluded and oppressed people within society.
Our degree is underpinned by an educational philosophy based on dialogue and lived experience. A dedicated full-time placement coordinator works closely with students to ensure the best possible placement experience for every student. Our small class sizes help enrich student's understanding of what’s involved in an authentic and therapeutic relationship driven by a person-centred approach toward care.
