Course content

This course is designed to help you identify and lead your own professional development within your health or social care career. The modular structure of our MSc in Health and Social Care allows you to personalise the programme to your specific interests, working on a module-by-module basis for maximum flexibility. You’ll study three compulsory modules, starting with a unit focused on developing analytical skills for professional practice, and move on to modules of your choosing in areas like safeguarding, clinical diagnostics and dementia care.

Studying the theory of your chosen subjects, you’ll have the opportunity to develop a broader awareness of current issues within health and social care practice; researching themes in depth, developing evidence-based concepts, and working in our advanced Clinical Simulation Suite. Alongside your core studies, you’ll also be able to focus on developing transferable skills such as problem solving, leadership and teamwork, and build your abilities in information and communication technology.

The course is designed to help you achieve your potential and enjoy your work. By encouraging you to reflect on your performance and take charge of your own development, we aim to help you advance your career in health and social care.
