Enhance your knowledge and skills as a healthcare professional with our MSc Advancing Healthcare Practice.
Practising healthcare professionals can apply to either study individual modules from the CPD programme or to study this flexible, taught, workplace-based master's degree, which combines a range of optional and compulsory modules to suit their learning needs.
If you already have postgraduate academic credits from other healthcare-based courses — such as PGCert/Dip in Pharmacy Practice, PGDip in Physician Associate Studies, PGCert in Independent Prescribing, or another healthcare-related subject — you may be able to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) to join the programme partway through.
Full MSc programme
If you are interested in studying the flexible MSc, the module options you choose will determine when you will be able to apply for the programme. For information on the other modules please see the programme structure tab at the top of this page or contact the admissions tutor at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss an appropriate modular learning plan. If you are interested in studying for an MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice, please visit the Department website.
MSc top-up programme only
For applicants who have 120 credits at level 7 in relevant subjects aligned to the programme learning outcomes, you can apply to join for our 60 credit MSc top-up programme. For more information on the MSc Top-up programme and upcoming enrolment options, please see our Department website.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Applicants can apply for the programme via different routes of entry. For students who wish to study at level 6, routes to a Graduate Certificate/Diploma may be available and the admissions tutors should be contacted for available options.
Experienced healthcare practitioners who are not able to apply for RPL may be able to apply for Recognition of Prior Experiential Learning (RPEL) to recognise prior learning experiences.
If you wish to apply for RPL or RPEL, please contact the MSc in Advancing Healthcare Practice admissions tutor at email@example.com for further information.
