Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I am wondering how, if at all your job prospects improved after doing this subject. I am currrently a support worker qualified at QCF level 3, but want to do the HNC/D to improve my career prospects. I may go on to complete the final top-up year at uni after for the full health and social care degree. However unlike the social work or nursing degree, you dont come out of this degree with a "specific" qualification which qualifies you in that profession.

    After the HND could I top up in a different degree? Or will it be only health and social care available to me? I love the subject but what jobs are available after it that wont entail me doing another 3 years at university???

    You can only top-up to a degree in Health and Social care, if that's what you did for a HND. Or have you thought about doing a part time degree? in something you might be interested in as a different but related career? e.g Paramedic science, nursing?
