Either a bachelors degree or 120 credits at level 6 (degree level).
We expect many applicants will have clinical experience of caring for or supporting people with dementia but this is not a requirement.
Months of entry
About 800,000 people in the UK are living with dementia. It’s estimated that dementia costs the economy £23 billion a year. There is a growing demand for practitioners and decision-makers with the insight to tackle what is a major social challenge. This new MA helps to meet that demand.
The course was developed by staff from the School of Nursing and Midwifery with colleagues from the Departments of Sociological Studies and Human Communication Sciences. The teaching team are academics and practitioners from dementia education, research and clinical practice.
Full-time students attend two full study days a week at University during term time, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Students complete four compulsory 15- credit modules per semester and then either a 60 credit research dissertation or a Critical Development of Clinical Practice project between February and September of 2019.
