Course content

The aim of our Master's programme is to advance practice and develop leadership skills in practitioners and managers. Whether you have a responsibility for the health and social care of children, patients and service users, or their carers and families, our degree will develop your practice based expertise, compassion and resilience.

Our lecturers will prepare you with theory and research in the development of clinical and direct care. You will evaluate and integrate knowledge in order to influence and inform systematic processes. This will be within the area of both care and care management. You will also learn to formulate and apply knowledge of governance, policy, regulation, legal and ethics.

We will provide you with opportunities for networking and developing an advanced practice community. Here you will learn to inspire yourself and others to become ingenious in critical situations.
