  • ongoing tutor and peer feedback
  • practical work, including group projects and discussion forums

Career prospects

Successful completion of this distance learning degree offers health, social work and social care professionals the potential to specialise in the field of dementia. We are also keen to help develop specialist knowledge and skills in people who currently volunteer in the field.
