mental health needs, or to protect the health, dignity and emotional wellbeing
of patients before, during and after surgery. Or you could learn how to treat and
stabilise patients at the scene of an accident or emergency or gain the clinical skills
and knowledge to become a competent physiotherapist.
And if you’re already working in a professional setting, we have courses to enhance
your existing healthcare skills.
If you don’t quite meet the entry requirements for our full degrees, there’s still a
way in. You can study part time for a year on our University Certificate in Health
and Social Care Practice course or Alternative Route into Health and Social Care
(evening and online) (see page 22). Passing that means you can apply for any of the
programmes in this brochure (excluding Physiotherapy).*

Course structure
How are degrees taught?
Most of our undergraduate courses are made up of study units called modules.
You’ll be assessed after each module, and the average of all your module
assessments for the year is your overall result for that year.

Can I pick and choose modules?
Yes, to an extent. Some modules are compulsory, so you have to take them.
Within that compulsory group are some ‘core’ modules, too. They’re essential to the
course (to make sure our degrees qualify for relevant accreditation, for example), so
they’ll never change and you have to pass them.
That said, some of our modules are optional – so you can pick what you study to suit
your interests and career goals.

How many modules will I take?
Usually, you’ll take six modules a year: three from the start of term to Christmas, and
three more between January and the summer. Later in your course, some modules –
like larger-scale projects or a dissertation – might count as two modules and run for
the full year.

Careers
                 By the end of your course, you’ll be ready to undertake
                 the responsibilities of a health practitioner. Most of our
                 graduates go on to work in the NHS – but others find
                 positions overseas, in private practice, in the social
                 services, the pharmaceutical industry, the armed forces,
                 the prison service or in specialist areas such as drug
                 rehabilitation.

                 options and progress into a career you’ll love. You’ll learn how to apply for jobs, prep
                 for interviews and impress potential employers.

What’s stopping
you?
We offer flexible routes into nursing and healthcare. There are
courses where you can learn and gain experience at the same
time. And some of them don’t need you to meet our typical
entry requirements or study full time at the University.
Many of our programmes are designed for people already working in nursing,
healthcare or social work who want to make an even bigger contribution to patient
and client care.
Our courses can also open up careers as nurses, midwives, operating department
practitioners, paramedics and social workers to people from a wide range of
backgrounds and we welcome college leavers to mature students.
University Certificate in Health and Social Care Practice
This part-time flexible programme offers an accessible and relevant introduction
to academic study. If you complete the certificate, you’ll be eligible to apply for
selected health and social care degrees at Hull.
Alternative Route into Health and Social Care
Delivered through evening classes and online, this flexible course offers
opportunities for people who want to pursue careers in health and social care, but
don’t currently have the qualifications to apply for one of our degrees. As with the
Certificate, successful completion means you will be eligible to apply for selected
health and social care degrees at Hull.*

A royal appointment
Her Majesty The Queen officially opened the Allam Medical
Building in November 2017. A jaw-dropping VIP for a mind-
blowing medical training facility.
The beating heart of our £28-million health campus project,
the building houses a simulated learning environment,
including a simulated hospital ward, operating theatre,
endoscopy unit, midwifery-led birthing unit, intensive care unit                        HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN SIGNING THE VISITORS' BOOK IN

unfold in an authentic setting – giving you the skills and the
confidence to do the job when you eventually do face genuine
front-line situations. You'll also be learning side by side with
other healthcare practitioners, preparing you for future careers
working together.
And really, that’s the whole point. This is a facility that exists
to make an extraordinary difference to ordinary people. And
it is doing.
We train outstanding graduates to address the shortage
of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers. We’re helping
pregnant women and new mums with a radically different
service to diagnose mental health issues and access to better
care. Our partnership with Yorkshire Cancer Research is
tackling cancer inequalities in the region. And our Wolfson
Palliative Care Research Centre is helping those with terminal
conditions live as well as they can and giving them courage
and control when the time comes.

This. Is. Hull.
A place where we stand up to kings, do deals with the
world and take a wrecking ball to the slave trade.
A place where culture stands out and the phone boxes
are a different colour. A place where we’re free thinking,
independent and proud of it.
