During your studies, you learn how to respond to the holistic health care needs of children, young people and their family and / or carers. We also encourage collaboration with other professionals from health, social care and education to deliver an excellent standard of care.

The campus is small and really community focused, it’s impossible not to make friends. It’s also all on the waterfront, which is seriously lovely in the summer. Teachers are really passionate about their subjects and encouraged students to share and develop our ideas. The SU is also amazing, loads of great nights on too. University of Suffolk is a really well-kept secret.
