Public Services BA (Hons)

Public services affect our day-to-day lives in many ways; from the collection of refuse to community regeneration, and the protection provided by the emergency services and the health service. On this public services course, you'll explore how these services operate and the challenges they face in the 21st century, preparing you for a career in this important and diverse sector.

A key feature of your public services degree is the link between theory and practice.

Learning is often based on real-life data, as well as examples and case studies from public, voluntary and community organisations.This ensures that what you learn is relevant to the workplace and situations you may encounter when you graduate.

You'll also be encouraged to undertake a short-term placement during your studies. You could get the chance to work with public sector organisations such as the NHS. This valuable opportunity will ensure you're equipped with skills needed by employers when you graduate.
