Course content

The MSc in Community and Primary Care Practice has been designed to support practitioners working in professional clinical and community based settings, to lead and drive high quality person-centred care.

The course is designed for those working in a range of settings including the NHS and independently funded sectors such as community hospitals, practice-based settings, nursing and residential homes.

Our flexible programme will enable you to tailor your learning experience to your personal and professional aspirations. You will: develop skills to practice credibility within your work setting; develop competency in leading and advancing your practice; lead the practice of others; and apply your learning to real clinical situations to improve the experience of people in your care.

The programme is firmly rooted in a person-centred approach, for both people in your care and you as a student. Your personal tutor will help you to design your programme to meet your ambitions and support you in your journey to develop or consolidate your work in a community or primary health care setting. You will also receive support in planning and managing the busy demands of your study and work life balance.

The programme operates a modular system which can be taken part-time over two-to-four years or on a full-time basis.
