What can a healthcare management top-up do for me?

Health and social care is a vast service sector with new government initiatives giving it a higher profile than ever before. These developments mean there is likely to be a demand for well-trained, multi-skilled people.

More than 60% of health studies graduates are in full-time employment six months after graduating, with a further 25% undertaking study or combining work and study, as reported by Prospects.

Boosting your knowledge of health and social care, a health degree can equip you with a range of vocational skills that will lead you into your future career.

What can I do after uni?

People who graduate with this degree typically go on to succeed in roles such as:

  • Care Manager
  • Health Service Manager
  • Charity Officer
  • Health Promotion Specialist

What do our alumni say?

Edith was a support worker in an advanced dementia home when she decided to study a healthcare management degree.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the way I have been challenged by the tutors, the ever-helpful back offices, and the interaction with fellow students. Here I am now, earning £10,000 a year more than I was three months ago and I’m now a Regional Trainer.”
