BSc Health and Social Care

This part time Higher Education programme is validated by Manchester Metropolitan University and delivered locally at Keyll Darree by the Health and Social Care Teaching Team.

The programme is centred on developing lifelong learning in support of professional practice and person development planning. The programme will allow professionals to continually review their practices in relation to demographic need, policy creation and where necessary, implement change. 

Past students include nurses (from acute care, continuing care, hospice, community, prison, adult and paediatric services), paramedics, social workers, police officers, counsellors amongst others. Currently, staff from the Isle of Man Government have their course fees paid by their department once they have their manager’s support to study.

If you are at the stage of thinking about applying, you are required to arrange an Informal Information Interview by contacting the Programme Leader/Deputy Programme Leader to discuss the various entry criteria specified in the programme specification.
