120 credits are required at level 6. We also recognise the importance of being to study other modules delivered by the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education. This allows you flexibility to specialise in certain subjects such as primary care. Although there is a broad range to choose from, up to 60 credits can be selected from the BSc Health Care Practice. We recommend the following modules for students hoping to specialise in the primary care practitioner role, which are delivered by other teams within the FHSCE:
