Our postgraduate masters course is designed to develop your analytical and critical thinking, improve your competencies to lead and manage change, and give you the skills and knowledge to progress your career into more challenging senior roles.
Postgraduate study is an essential investment in career progression and the pursuit of excellence in care delivery. Flexible and student-centred, the course has been carefully designed to meet the needs of those working in a range of roles and service environments. It is open to both experienced and newly registered health and social care practitioners.
One of the key benefits of the programme is its interprofessional nature, drawing applicants from a wide range of settings. This will lead to fascinating opportunities to learn from each others' experiences and perspectives, build networks and enhance future interdisciplinary working, training and supervision.
For those not wishing to complete the full masters, you can choose to leave the award with either a postgraduate certificate or diploma, depending on the modules accrued.
During the course, you can choose to follow a specific pathway, tailoring the course to suit your own interests or practice. Go to the 'Course details' tab for pathway details.
We hope you will join us during this challenging and fulfilling stage of your career and we look forward to working with you to achieve your highest goals.
