Foundation Pathway in Science and Healthcare

The University of Northampton is ranked 11th in the UK for Health Profession subjects (Guardian, 2017) and so studying here will give you the skills, knowledge and practical experience required to begin your career with confidence.

All students progressing onto Occupational Therapy, Podiatry and Mental Health Nurising will have to submit a personal statement and pass an interview before they can progress onto the University of Northampton. Students will be prepared for this as much as possible as part of their Preparing for a Career in Healthcare module which has been specifically designed to support students to pass the interview and write their personal statements.
It is essential that prior to interview students arrange shadowing opportunities within their field. Please be very aware your place on these three degrees is not guaranteed on being accepted to the UNIC Foundation and is entirely dependent on you passing the interview stage. If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact the UNIC Team.
