Course content

The aim of the programme is to develop autonomous reflective practitioners who are engaged in advanced practice within a range of organisational and professional settings. There is much interest in advanced practice within the government and the professions and many professional bodies have developed their own framework which includes study to Masters level.

The programme is designed to be flexible and integrate learning already available within the Cardiff School of Health Sciences. The integration of the programme for the individual will be focused by the individual learner's needs. This approach fosters interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary learning, which encourages best practice, innovation and cross-fertilisation. Participants may undertake modules offered at other Universities to meet their individual learning needs, provided that the modules are approved by Cardiff Metropolitan University.
