Course content

Address the big questions within practice and challenge the status quo with this innovative Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care course.

The Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care postgraduate course is for students who are working in clinical and social care settings who want to pose challenging questions and confront the answers.

It will appeal to those who want to create positive change by conducting evidence-based research which can be applied in practice.

Our students come from a variety of careers in the health and social care sector; including emergency practitioners, health care managers and podiatrists. Students also come on to the course directly from undergraduate degree courses.

The MSc in Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care programme is a scholarly Masters degree with a strong theoretical focus.

We believe that to be effective, you need a future-proofed qualification; one which explores practice from a wider, research-based perspective.

Designed in consultation with users and carers, the Health and Social Care Masters course takes account of the user experience and has been developed around their expectations of professionals within the healthcare sector.

The MSc will challenge practices within the current healthcare sector and ask questions such as:

  • How can we prove and measure our performance?
  • To what extent should we challenge guidelines or established forms of practice?
  • How can our actions within practice transform the user experience?
  • How can we manage levels of stress in a way that promotes welfare?


The MSc also offers students the flexibility to tailor the modules they study to meet their professional needs by offering a range of elective modules from across the School’s programmes from management and leadership to infection control.
