Course content

This programme is designed to help you progress as a healthcare professional. It will give you both the skills and the professional qualification you need to apply for more senior leadership and management positions within health and social care.

Our team of experienced academics and practitioners focus on competent management and effective leadership, giving students from both clinical and managerial backgrounds the tools required to deliver service improvement and sustainable change in health and social care settings.

The programme is suitable for those working in both clinical and non-clinical roles:

  • those already working as allied health professionals, clinical scientists, nurses or doctors who wish to pursue managerial opportunities
  • those working within the health and social care or voluntary sector in roles such as commissioning, quality improvement, clinical auditing or risk management who are looking to take the next step in their career
  • those who have completed an undergraduate programme in a relevant discipline and have some experience in health and social care

You will have the opportunity to study with people from a variety of different services and settings. The programme is designed to fit into busy working schedules and to be as useful as possible to both yourself and your employer; we combine study and assessment of theory alongside its application within a work setting.

Students are able to undertake the MSc Leadership in Health and Social Care on a full-time or part-time basis.
