Course content

This is a part-time course for healthcare practitioners with a degree wanting to obtain an academic and professional qualification in a clinical speciality.

There are five clinical speciality awards, reflecting contemporary clinical practice.

  • Acute Care
  • Cardiac Care
  • Emergency Care
  • Intensive Care
  • Neonatal Care

A wide choice of modules means that you can create your own study programme to suit your professional and personal aspirations. The clinical practice modules are either 20 or 30 credits and are all offered as shared delivery at level 6 and level 7.

We are known for our flexible approaches to practice-based learning, with course durations and intensities that can be adapted to your individual needs and outside commitments.

Our high quality teaching and research are renowned, and have an applied focus. We have established strong links with our clinical practice partners to ensure the provision of support and guidance for students both within the university and in clinical practice.

The recognition that patients come first in everything the NHS does, and the values of the NHS constitution – respect, dignity, compassion and working together for patients – are embedded in our curriculum.
