If you’ve ever thought of becoming a social entrepreneur by setting up your own organisation, or considered how you can make a positive change in the community, our course will equip you with all the skills, knowledge and experience needed to start your journey into the public health sector.
We've spent £14 million on a brand new campus building. It's a purpose-built, state-of-the-art development that is one of the most modern facilities in the UK. It includes a library, IT suites, mock law court, engineering and science labs, cafe and lots of individual and group study spaces. Next to us is Scarborough's new leisure village. The complex includes an Olympic legacy swimming pool, sports hall, fitness suite, all weather pitches and the new Scarborough Athletic football ground.
This course has been developed and is taught by practising professionals and industry experts. Our academics bring a wealth of expertise to the classroom with many continuing to undertake research and other projects alongside teaching, meaning our students gain a well-rounded and relevant teaching experience.
Throughout your studies, you will find that the course is underpinned with practical elements. In previous years, CU students have visited a variety of public institutions, such as the Museum of Mental Health, Parliament, housing charities and CU Social Enterprise to experience modern organisations and how they operate in the public sector.
At CU Scarborough, we put a strong focus on getting our graduates ready to enter the job market. This can be done in a variety of ways—one key element is work placements. With this degree, you are given the opportunity to undertake short and long-term placements in between the second and third year.
