Course content

Health and Education enables students with experience of the public sector and health education to study disciplines and dimensions associated with health, health care and applied social science with an emphasis on education.

Students have to be already teaching for a minimum of 15 hours a week within a health or social care setting. Education modules comprise those that make up the Health and Social Care Education postgraduate certificate (PGCert). This course is also registered with the Nursing Midwifery Council. It is also possible to choose another health education-related PGCert from a selection offered across the university. Each individual student will consider which PGCert most meets their professional requirements in consultation with the course team.

A further two modules are then chosen from the faculty graduate programme and the MSc is completed with the dissertation which will normally have a management component. This is reviewed annually through tutorials with the student and allocated personal tutor and utilises a career planning framework.
