I've got so many new skills from doing this course. I feel like my interpersonal skills were good before I came to Bradford but now they’re in a different league! I’ve learnt how to do great presentations, be more self-reflective, really understand how to interact with people in a room, and my organisation skills have come on so much. The best thing is that I’ve polished my professional identity, and feel confident to move forward into a successful career. Vanessa Naddamba, BSc (Hons) Public Health and Community Wellbeing

Employers place a high value on graduates who can show that they have relevant work experience.

To prepare students for future employment, all students complete a work based placement during the 2nd year of the course. The placement takes place in Semester 1 of the 2nd year. Each placement is 100 hours, which is around 14 days.

The placement will give you the opportunity to apply your knowledge in real-world settings. You will also gain valuable experience and develop skills that will help you succeed in the job market when you graduate.

  • Mental health

  • Care homes
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Supporting refugees and asylum seekers
