Housed within the developing Faculty of Health and Psychology are the BSc Health and Social care and BSc Psychology (Applied). Both programmes are awarded by Anglia Ruskin University and provide an equivalent student experience.
The Health and Social Care programme is designed for those who are currently working within the sector or have an interest in doing so. Students come from a variety of backgrounds. For example practitioners in nursing or care or those responsible for their management. The programme emphasises the development of the skills needed to work in the sector as well as broader policy and management issues.
Psychology is an extremely popular programme. Those taking it do so for reasons to do with both career development and general interest. The programme provides a firm foundation in key areas of psychology and helps students develop the fundamental skills needed to undertake their own research.
The RDI staff teaching on these programmes hold relevant academic or professional qualifications and are experienced tutors. Like our other tutors they are appointed in accordance with our rigorous selection criteria and are all approved by our university partners. All our staff have a commitment to developing their subject specialism and many are actively undertaking consultancy or publishing research. A list of staff with their subject interests is given below.
