Course Summary

Health and wellbeing is a rapidly changing and challenging area both nationally and internationally. This course aims to equip the future senior leaders and strategic thinkers in health and wellbeing with the knowledge, skills and expertise to enable them to take a leading role in responding to these complex issues. This course offers a full or part-time route to develop understanding, knowledge and expertise across a broad range of health and wellbeing subjects including mental health, weight management, the healthy environment, workplace wellbeing, healthy ageing, and contemporary issues.

The course considers national and international trends and challenges in enabling sustainable population health and wellbeing, alongside developing students' academic and professional skills to support both future career advancement and further research.

Health and wellbeing practitioners work alongside active researchers and experienced lecturers to help you follow your passion for improving the health and wellbeing of others. You will develop the skills and knowledge to understand both the bigger picture in health and wellbeing strategy, policy and intervention planning, as well as focusing on the challenges to maintaining health and wellbeing for marginalised groups.

Inequalities in health and wellbeing persist despite action being taken at multiple levels. You will develop the ability to analyse the complexity of responding to diverse needs, and develop solutions that are grounded in theory, based in evidence and are pragmatic and workable. This will enhance your employment prospects as you will be building your own problem solving expertise within this field. By the time you graduate, you will be able to apply your expertise and demonstrate that you are able to become a leader in this area going forwards.
