Course content

This part-time course is designed to develop the knowledge and understanding of health and social care professionals working to, or aspiring to be, advanced practitioners.

This flexible course will allow you to develop your knowledge base from the perspective of your own work, whilst sharing and learning from your colleagues across the interprofessional team. You can choose from over 60 units to undertake a degree that is tailored to your professional development. It presents an opportunity for you to show your ability to critically evaluate your practice and make evidence-based judgements. You'll be able to further integrate new and existing skills in a practice setting while maintaining and developing high-quality healthcare in your current workplace.

For 2018 entry: In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses. This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in November 2017 to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.
