Part-time undergraduate (3 years)
This course opens up the world of healthcare science (physiological sciences) to those supported by their Healthcare employers. We’ll prepare you to work in either cardiovascular or respiratory disciplines as well as with patients who have difficulties with sleep. You’ll learn how to use specialist equipment to diagnose and treat problems.
You’ll spend around a third of the course on clinical placements, doing work-based learning. This involves ten weeks in Year 1, 15 weeks in Year 2 and 25 weeks in Year 3. To help you prepare for clinical practice, you’ll use Anglia Ruskin’s own excellent equipment, during which you will do some tests on your fellow students (such as spirometry or having blood pressure recorded).
Throughout the course, you’ll have the support of our friendly, helpful tutors. You’ll also go on trips to further your understanding – this may include museums and hospital departments.
Cardiac and Respiratory Practitioners work in a variety of hospital clinics and departments, and increasingly within the community. They investigate the functioning of organs and body systems in order to diagnose abnormalities as part of the patient's care pathway.
We use a wide range of assessment methods to help you and your tutors measure your progress on the course. Besides exams, these include laboratory reports, presentations, essays, a portfolio, patchwork texts (short pieces of writing, or 'patches', built up week by week), a research proposal and a major project.
The End Point Assessment that completes the Apprenticeship is integrated into the curriculum of the Degree and successful completion of the EPA will confer both the Bachelor Degree and the Degree Apprenticeship. The EPA consists of three components which also form the assessments for the module “Work Place Learning for Healthcare Science 3”:
