Why study this course?

Our Community Development and Leadership BSc (Hons) degree focuses on social concerns affecting communities and individuals. This undergraduate degree also holds two validations from professional bodies, the Endorsement and Quality Standards Board for Community Development Learning and the Chartered Institute of Housing.

In the most recent Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 94% of all 2017 graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months.

Our Community Development and Leadership BSc course combines the disciplines of social policy and sociology to provide a comprehensive view into issues that affect communities and look at how we can prevent them.
