The Comparative Health in Health and Social Care module offers students the chance to participate in a study trip abroad where they can explore the range of health and social care services available to older people. There are opportunities to gain work experience. Please note that students are responsible for covering their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs while studying abroad or on work experience.
The study abroad year is available to those who have successfully completed the first and second year of the degree. There are two places available. Places are subject to academic criteria and good attendance. The year includes funding for accommodation, food, and travel expenses, however, students will be responsible for their living costs.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
Although not engaged on a vocational programme with formally assessed placements, all students on the Health and Social Care course are required to acquire relevant work experience in a paid or voluntary setting.
This can be undertaken at home during the summer or during term time in Lincoln, and the surrounding areas. Students will be fully supported as they produce a written assignment about the organisation and plan their own professional development. Students are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs while on a study trip or placement.
Placements are not formally assessed, however, the work undertaken during any voluntary and paid placements in the first two years of the programme will inform the third year core module: Skills and Professional Development.
Students can gain a certificate for First Aid training (basic and advanced) as part of the Human Bioscience module in the first year, which may incur additional costs.
You will also have the chance to gain a Mental Health First Aid certificate as part of the Mental Health and Wellbeing module in the second year, which may incur additional costs.
In year three, students who choose the Counselling and Guidance Skills module have the opportunity to undergo Suicide Awareness and Intervention training.

Nursing practice in the 21st Century is becoming increasingly demanding. Nurses play a key role, through their work in primary and secondary care.
Nursing focuses on restoring and promoting health, supporting patients and their families, and profiling healthcare needs of communities.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
