Course content

Starting in September 2016, this innovative master's programme will support the professional development of home and international Nursing professionals to improve their knowledge and skills base, enabling them to meet the needs of modern globalised healthcare systems.

Students will work with tutors and international peers to expand their critical and intellectual knowledge of international nursing practice and develop an understanding of different demands, expectations and cultural differences across different healthcare settings.

Teaching on the MSc in International Nursing Studies is delivered by award winning Nurse academics who are experienced in global nursing perspectives, international health markets and international public health strategies. Tutors at Manchester Metropolitan University deliver a high level of student support in order to prepare nurses to work internationally, recognising the transcultural potential and transferability of the concepts of care for their future professional practice.

Students will engage in a rigorous analysis of the social and political dimensions of transcultural and global healthcare, underpinning the need for diversity in nursing and analyse a variety of contemporary global nursing and healthcare issues, which may include:

  • International community and public health projects
  • Workforce development
  • Developing sustainable communities
  • Community responsiveness
  • Communicable and non-communicable disease management.


Teaching will be delivered in small groups and take the form of lectures, tutorials, practice scenario building (including simulation and workshops), reflective logs, project work, peer learning, presentations, directed and self directed study, technology enhanced learning and e-learning. This variety of approaches maximises student potential and supports the development of a range of key transferable skills.
