Achieve a full honours degree that's relevant to your current job. Our distance learning course lets you study while you work, and gives you the skills you need to manage and lead teams. You’ll be well-equipped to face the challenges of complex, fast-moving health and social care organisations.


This course will develop you personally and professionally, and provide the tools you need to achieve your career potential. You’ll build your ability to work as an effective team leader in settings involving people from different disciplines and agencies.

You’ll advance your understanding of the latest policy developments in health & social care. You’ll develop your research awareness and analytical skills. You’ll learn to use higher level strategies for solving practical problems, and you’ll understand how better to implement, influence and adapt to change in your workplace. You’ll also explore the needs of service users so that their views – and those of their carers – are fully represented.

The course is delivered entirely online, so you can learn from anywhere, at any time, without needing to come to Anglia Ruskin. You’ll need access to a computer and the internet, plus basic IT skills. You’ll use our virtual learning environment, and our digital library offers access to electronic journals, e-books, databases and much more.

You’ll also do work-based learning in your current setting. Your study will be directly relevant to your job even though you’ll be investigating wider leadership and management themes.

You’ll prepare for the course online in advance with the support of a helpful tutor. There’s an online induction which encourages socialising with fellow students, and you’ll be encouraged to take part in online exercises and to use the discussion boards.

Students on this course work in the NHS, the voluntary and private sectors and the military, leading to interesting discussions.
