Course content

The MSc Leadership in Health & Social Care includes two specialist modules that focus on the role of leadership in delivering innovation and promoting resilience in health and social care settings.

It also includes three modules that emphasise the development of skills that allow practitioners to crucially appraise sources of evidence, and apply it in order to bring about improvement within a health and social care setting. There is also the option to study for a PG Cert, consisting of one research based module and your chosen specialist module.
The Masters programme and the PG Certs are attractive to anyone working in a health and social care setting with a desire to build on their knowledge and practical experience through relevant multi-professional learning and research. They will enable graduates to demonstrate a critical awareness of a range of complex issues associated with leadership in the allied health professions and critically evaluate evidence in this area to improve practice.
The professional group attracted to these courses include a wide range of professions from across the health and social care field, including: Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Nurses, Social Workers, Care Workers, a range of Allied Health Professionals, Medical Staff and Podiatrists.
