Course content

This series of linked awards (PGCert, PGDip, MA/MSc) enables graduate professionals in all sectors to enhance their continued professional development and lifelong learning through the negotiation of learning contracts, specifically developed work based learning initiatives and post graduate level academic study.

The programme also substantially builds upon professional expertise and prior learning and enables previously gained 'M level' credit to be incorporated into the individual's customised post graduate programme of study.

Another named route that can be taken as part of the programme is MA Applied Professional Studies (Innovation). This is designed for individuals whose current role is to innovate, either in public, social or private enterprise on a major or minor scale.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To effectively plan personal continuing professional development by linking professional endeavour and academic scholarship
  • To strategically link advanced professional practice and academic achievement as a way of leading and sustaining change in your place of work
  • To explore and effectively develop inter-professional and trans-professional working
  • To systematically plan and execute a major piece of independent work which informs and advances professionalism and influences strategic decision making.
