Course details
Course UCAS code: B340
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
This degree builds on the industry-recognised HNC/D programmes. All first year entrants will start on the HNC and the entry requirements are therefore for this programme. Successful completion will allow you to progress to the second year of the HND. Following achievement of the HND, you can progress to the third year of the degree. Applicants already holding a relevant HNC qualification can apply for direct entry to the second year. When completing your application make sure you choose year two. Applicants already holding a relevant HND qualification can apply for direct entry to year three, again where this is the case please make sure you choose year three when completing your application. The BSc (Hons) Integrative Healthcare is the only course of its kind in Scotland and has been developed, in consultation with industry, to closely reflect the changing requirements of the healthcare sector in the UK and abroad. Healthcare practitioners face challenges that require innovative and new approaches to delivering healthcare needs for 21st century clients and increasingly, additional or alternative methods of care such as complementary therapies are being considered. You will develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of complementary therapies, research and healthcare while enhancing your analytical, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. A critical awareness of current issues and developments in complementary therapies will also form part of the programme. Throughout the degree there is an emphasis on the wide range of diverse and complex perspectives of health, particularly social policy, ethics, the law, politics, physiology and sociology. As you progress through the programme your learning will become more self-directed, with the bulk of years three and four being delivered online, with attendance being required for the practical and clinical practice elements of the course only (a two-day induction, and two single weeks for the practical, each year). An online induction module will be available prior to the start of year three to help you get the most out of your studies. This will allow you the flexibility to study from your own location. Placements will be undertaken within an agreed relevant healthcare setting.
