I'm studying at college and doing a level 1 care course, and next year I'll be doing level 2 health & social care course, and I will be getting my 120 credit diploma. However with them grades can I go straight to uni after my level 2 course? I just need to know after college where exactly I need to go and what type of requirements will I need to become a health visitor?

To go to uni you need a level 3 qualification including gcse english, maths and a science.
Then to be a health visitor im pretty sure you need a degree in either child nursing or midwifery and do that for a few years before applying to be a health visitor

As above, Health Visitors are registered nurses so you would need to study a degree in either child or adult nursing or midwifery.
To start training, you would need to apply for the Specialist Community Public Health Nursing Health Visiting (SCPHN/HV) programme.
The qualification is studied at degree level, or postgraduate level if you already have a degree.

Mental health nurses can also undertake health visitor training.

You can be from any nursing background to train as a Health Visitor.
