About the course

Our Undergraduate Level 4/5 Health and Social Care course is a 240-credit program designed to accelerate students toward the final year of an associated undergraduate degree in the health and social care sector. You can complete the final year top-up degree at a UK university, either on campus or through distance learning.

The Level 4 modules and assignments are equivalent to the first year of a university degree, while the Level 5 modules and assignments correspond to the second year.

This course comprises six Level 4 modules and assignments (120 credits) and five Level 5 modules and assignments (120 credits). Opting for Level 4 alone earns you 120 credits and the opportunity to seek exemption from the first year of a university degree.

Each module involves around 40 guided learning hours, with an additional 30-50 hours of optional learning materials, including recommended exercises, readings, and internet resources.

Great news: ELCAS funding is available for this course!
