Course content

The course offers a varied and flexible programme of practical and academic study. Students complete a personalised award in which they self-select modules of study or a specific pathway that allows the exploration of specialist areas of practice, like the development of advanced skills in autonomous practice.

There is provision for Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL), depending upon the choice of study route followed, and a flexible framework offering interim awards (postgraduate certificates and diplomas) as well as a full MSc. All routes include compulsory research modules.

Compulsory core modules

• Research methods (15 credits)
• Dissertation research project or work-based project or systematic review (60 credits)

You may choose to complete a traditional research project, work-based project or a systematic review for your dissertation. This offers flexibility and allows you to undertake a dissertation which will have meaning and relevance to your particular professional circumstances.

There will be provision for APL, subject to the choice of study route followed, and a flexible framework offering interim awards (PgCert/PgDip) as well as the full MSc. Most modules are available on a freestanding basis. All routes include compulsory research modules.
