Course content

The first year is a generic year allowing the student to engage with professionals in modules on research skills, management and evidence-based practice. The practical project is also planned during this time. This year is assessed by course work only.
In the second year the student has to choose two modules from a wide range of options (15 credits per module). In addition to this they will also have their specialist subject (30 credits). It is also possible to enrol on two specialist modules only.
