Nursing with foundation years

If you do not reach the academic requirements to study a nursing degree, a foundation year is a great option. :thumbsup:

A foundation year is a year added to the start of your degree, making it 4 years rather than 3. This can be useful for those who don't quite meet the academic requirements to study the 3-year course at degree level as they have a lower entry requirement, or perhaps those who have been out of education for some time.

At Canterbury Christ Church University, we offer a Health Foundation Year. Upon successful completion, you will be able to progress onto your chosen nursing degree. :nurse:

These are the modules that you will learn for the Health Foundation Year that will give you the understanding of the core health and wellbeing concepts:

- Academic Skills for Higher Education
- Introduction to Healthcare, Social Care and Public Health
- Human Development through the Life Course
- Communicating for Health and Wellbeing
- Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology
- Introduction to Social and Environmental Aspects for Health and Wellbeing

For our Health Foundation Year there is no placements as it is a year to introduce you to the subject area and research method.

However, if you are looking at other foundation years we would recommend to look at the course pages that offer the foundation year to find out if there is any placements.

I hope that helps :smile:
