Entry requirements

To secure your place on the course, applicants will typically hold a first degree or equivalent (including international qualifications) in a relevant professional healthcare field, such as a medical or nursing degree. Registered healthcare professionals without these recognised qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and a wide range of prior experience may be taken into account.

In some cases, applicants may be asked to submit a piece of work for assessment in order to confirm that they are able to work comfortably at postgraduate level, and demonstrate the requisite clinical and professional knowledge.

Course content

This clinically-focused course in diabetes, run with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc, provides post-qualification preparation for roles in diabetes specialist teams, diabetes specialist nursing, practice nursing and allied health professionals aiming to provide diabetes services in primary care.

The course, delivered entirely online, is designed to equip professionals with the knowledge and skills to deliver a first-rate diabetes service. You will gain experience of developing local guidelines, patient information literature or care pathways which will be part of their individual and group activities.

You will develop a greater confidence and understanding of the management of people with Diabetes through case studies and discussion and improve your critical analysis of published data and data interpretation.

The curriculum is based on the International Curriculum for Diabetes Health Professional Education produced by the International Diabetes Federation and meets the highest international standards for diabetes education. On successful completion of this course you could go on to study the MSc Diabetes.
