Our four-year degree programme, in partnership with Leeds Trinity University, allows you to commence your studies with an initial foundation year. This initial one-year period of study allows you to develop your academic skills and confidence through undertaking four 30-credit Year 0 modules. You must pass the foundation year in order to progress onto the subsequent years. These modules are designed to introduce you to a number of key concepts, debates and skills that will inform your second, third and fourth years of study.
*Upon successful completion of the foundation year, you will be able to progress to level 4 of the BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care, either at GBS or the main Leeds Trinity University campus in Leeds.
