Modules will enable you to advance your knowledge in relation to a range of theories and concepts, which underpin the delivery of high quality and safe healthcare.
Healthcare science courses combine state-of-the-art healthcare methodologies with relevant physiological and/or life science approaches, in order to examine the effective management of the wellbeing and health of individuals and/or groups of people, with a healthcare need.
You will receive a thorough grounding in the scientific foundations of health, illness and healthcare and will be taught the most up-to-date concepts in healthcare research methodology and data analysis.
Foundation and top-up courses are also available for healthcare students who qualified outside Canada who wish to top-up their existing qualification to a degree.
Students who have successfully undertaken health studies degrees in Canada often secure employment within the public and private healthcare sectors, as well as undertaking teaching and research roles.
Entry requirements for health studies programmes vary greatly, but students will generally always require experience in science related subjects such as chemistry and biology.
As healthcare study and its allied subjects often have limited spaces available, entry can be competitive, especially for medicine and dentistry programmes.
