Course content

We consider advanced practice to be a level of practice, which can be achieved across a wider range of roles and settings in health and social care. Therefore, this programme is suitable for health and care professionals working in a wide variety of settings and to both national and international applicants living and working in the UK. As the programme requires learners to be assessed in practice and to undertake a service improvement project within their clinical setting, you must have the support of your employing organisation and a commitment by them that they will meet the assessment and governance requirements of the programme during your period of study. To this end, a meeting between the University, you and your line manager/practice assessor will be required during two core modules on the programme.

Key Attributes of the Programme:

  • A flexible approach to study: innovative and accessible online and blended learning teaching methods will sustain your interest and motivation, while giving you control over your learning experience.
  • Community of Learning: we embrace and encourage diverse professional perspectives and backgrounds to promote an inclusive and participatory approach to learning.
  • Underpinned by the four pillars of advanced practice: a range of core and optional modules to enhance practitioners’ overall level of practice, whatever their role.
  • Individual focus: evaluate and advance your practice by recognising and addressing areas of limitation, building on strengths, and reflecting on and applying your learning experiences to your own professional role and context.
  • Career-enhancing: gain the knowledge, insight and skills to progress your career to the next level, demonstrating your value to your employer and meeting the ever-changing challenges of modern healthcare practice.
  • Student support: to enable you to achieve your full potential, we offer a wide range of support for your academic study including a range of advisers and specialists within the school and programme team, and the University’s dedicated student support service.
