Why study with us at postgraduate level?

Healthcare in the UK is changing rapidly. Policy reviews, technological innovations and new health demands from a diverse and ageing population are placing unique requirements on healthcare professionals at all levels. To meet these challenges professionals must learn new skills, develop their understanding and embrace new practices.

Investing in postgraduate study with a world-leading university provides you with the perfect opportunity to do just that, while increasing your career opportunities and helping you deliver the best possible care.


The school offers a variety of full-time or part-time masters and doctoral programmes for health and social care professionals, with a focus on either advanced clinical practice or research. Staff and students are engaged with the latest developments in health services practice and research both nationally and internationally. 

Most recently, the school has achieved national and international recognition in the areas of:

  • user involvement
  • technology in healthcare education
  • end-of-life studies
  • mental health nursing

For those learning in practice, you can expect to work in acute and community settings within local NHS Health Care Trusts and across the voluntary and social service sectors.
