Foundation Pathway in Science and Healthcare

General

Program Description

The University of Northampton is ranked 7th in the UK for Health Profession subjects (Guardian, 2020) and so studying here will give you the skills, knowledge and practical experience required to begin your career with confidence. You will benefit from extensive work placements and experience in healthcare settings appropriate to your chosen discipline.

All students progressing onto these courses will have to pass an interview before progression to the University of Northampton. We want you to be aware that passing this module is a compulsory element of the programme and failure to achieve a passing grade on this module will prevent further progression to the University of Northampton, irrespective of passing all other modules on the programme. You will be prepared and supported for the interview process during the module ‘Preparing for a career in healthcare’ which is compulsory for all UNIC healthcare students.

Please note the entry requirements and fees are slightly higher for these courses.
