Community and Social Care: Policy and Practice

Foundation Entry Year

During your Foundation Entry Year you will study alongside peers from related courses, whilst you gain a broad introduction to social care. With a strong commitment to strength-based values, both in practice and education, you'll have excellent levels of support as you undertake your educational journal. Teaching is influenced by the real world experience of the lecturing staff, our partners in practice, and service user participation, as well as the research interest of the course team. You’ll be exposed to extensive opportunities to make a difference through work experience, entrepreneurial and research opportunities. The course is enhanced by education trips in the UK, Europe and further abroad.

For detailed information about studying this course at the University of Central Lancashire, please see the course specification and course handbook for your year of entry: 2016.
