About the FdSc Hospital and Health Care (Adult) programme
The FdSc Hospital and Health Care (Adult) course provides opportunities to gain knowledge of the health care profession and develop key skills to aid progression into the healthcare sector. On successful completion of the full programme students have the opportunity to be interviewed by the University of Hull to progress to Year 2 of the Adult Nursing programme. Students on this programme will require an enhanced DBS (£44), a health screening (£105) and uniform (£16-£23) – the cost of this must be met by the student and is in addition to tuition fees. The costs quoted are as at September 2017 and may be subject to change.

Learning & Teaching Methods
Methods of learning and teaching are designed to support students in becoming active members of a learning community. Students will be expected to work together in an informal environment as well as in formal classes where a culture of dignity, courtesy and mutual respect with staff and their peers is essential. A variety of methods will be used including interactive lectures, student led discussions and work based learning experience. Students will be visited in the workplace by an Institute staff member to ensure a positive partnership with the employer and to monitor that learning in the workplace is effective. Workplace learning is designed to support the development of an employable graduate equipped with the attributes, skills and knowledge to progress within a global market.
Upon successful completion of this degree, graduates will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to pursue a new career, or advance an existing one in as an assistant practitioner within the health and social care sector. They may also consider progressing onto further study within specialist areas such as adult nursing, physiotherapy, public health and occupational therapy.
