Course content

Our aim in the School of Healthcare Sciences is to provide health, social care and other related professionals with the opportunity to undertake a challenging and rewarding Masters in Advanced Practice. The programme focuses on your personal development as a professional leading, managing and developing advanced practice roles and models of care delivery.

The MSc in Advanced Practice is designed for health, social care and related professionals in primary, secondary and tertiary settings who wish to advance their knowledge base, clinical, leadership and management skills. Students, irrespective of clinical specialty, will become actively involved in the advancement of practice.

This specialist pathway through the MSc Advanced practice has been designed for health, social care and related professionals who either have an educational role within their current practice or are looking to develop one.

There are two routes through the MSc Advanced Practice: Education for Health Professionals programme, one which is Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) recordable, and a non-NMC route. Both routes focus on evidence based approaches to facilitating learning, teaching, inter professional learning and quality assurance in higher education and clinical practice.

You will be required to plan teaching sessions and strategies, implement educational assessment and evaluation strategies and lead practice and curriculum development activities.
