About Health Care Practice / HEDip / GradDip at Swansea University

Course Overview

A professionally orientated programme of study, this course enables students to further develop their self-awareness, values and understanding to help make better decisions in health care settings.

Key features

Who should take this course?
All health care professionals wanting to complete a first degree and/or graduate health care professionals with an existing degree seeking knowledge in a specific field of interest beyond that provided by their first degree.

Course description

BSC (Hons) and Graduate Diploma

Developed in line with the Quality Assurance Agency's framework for higher education in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (2001) and the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework and Development Review (2004), these courses are designed for health care professionals to continue their education and develop their skills to contribute to the changing health and social care system.

The courses are made up of two core modules, totalling 60 credits. The course enables a deeper understanding of the theory behind the health care practice, allowing students to make better informed, professional judgements in health care settings, resulting in confident, innovative clinical practitioners.

Course duration

Students are encouraged to complete their study in two years, studying 60 credits a year - which generally fits in easily with full-time employment. However, students wishing to study less credits per year are able to take up to four years to complete the course. Mode of attendance is determined by module selection.


Graduate Certificate

This will be awarded to students who complete a core module and obtain another 40 level three credits from modules of their own choice.
