Course details

Increase your skills in reflection, analysis and critical debate, as well as developing your knowledge base to match pace with current developments. With our emphasis on self-directed learning, you’ll be expected to read around the subject and actively engage in face-to-face and online tasks. You’ll learn through a mixture of lectures followed by small group work, and tutorials to support your development. You will benefit from assessment by written coursework with no written exams. In some modules, where there are skills components, there may be a practical assessment. Our teaching is underpinned by current research, giving you the opportunity to work closely with experienced staff on your own research project. The quality of our programme is important to us, so we’ll encourage you to engage in feedback, staff-student liaison and to join in with the wider life of the school.

Programme Description

This unique programme offers the opportunity to develop and extend expertise in the established and rapidly developing areas of laparoscopic surgery and bowel anastomosis. The MSc accelerates surgical training and improves surgical skills that are essential for building confidence in clinical practice. The programme will provide you with a unique opportunity to gain postgraduate training and development in cognitive and motor skills using the surgical simulators. Our state-of-the-art Virtual Reality Surgical Simulation Centre removes the patient from the equation to allow novice learning and skill mastery to occur in a low-stress, high-feedback environment while protecting the patient from procedural inexperience.

You will be taught techniques of secure suturing, knot tying and bowel anastomosis using non-biological materials. You will also gain a clear understanding of the concepts and theories surrounding the issues of research and critical appraisal, along with academic writing.

This programme is designed to enhance your future career prospects in surgery. It will also provide an excellent foundation for further research - MD(Res) or PhD studies.

Programme Outline

The programme comprises of the following compulsory modules:

Laparoscopic Skills (15 credits)

Laparoscopic Suturing Skills (15 credits)

Laparoscopic Procedure Skills (30 credits)

Bowel Anastomosis Skills (30 credits)

Research Methods (30 credits)

This course is for graduates of biological sciences who want to extend their studies into the professional field of dietetics. Read more

This course is for graduates of biological sciences who want to extend their studies into the professional field of dietetics. Dietetics is the management of diseases that are amenable to dietary intervention and the prevention of nutrition related disorders.  A dietitian influences food selection and eating behaviour of an individual based on specific nutritional or food requirements.

With a clinical and health promotion focus, this course includes three blocks of integrated practice placements of 4, 12 and 12 weeks duration within a hospital and/or primary care setting.

Teaching, learning and assessment

The emphasis is on student-centred learning where your previous knowledge and skills are used to develop your new subject area. Learning activities include lectures, tutorials, workshops and practical classes and are guided using web-based supported materials.

You will also attend three practical placements to enable the integration of theoretical knowledge with practical experience. A variety of assessment methods are used across the course.  Normally, there are 12 – 15 students on this course. This ensures that individuals receive excellent support and benefit from sharing their experiences with classmates.

Teaching hours and attendance

Each module is equivalent to a notional 150 hours of work which is made up of attendance in class and independent work. The structure of each module is different with different attendance requirement  for each timetabled module. Over an average semester the expectation is that during 14 weeks of teaching this will equate to approx. 40 hours per week of student effort (contact classes plus independent study time). Students normally complete the course via a full time route but part-time routes are available and can be discussed with the Programme Leader.

All placements are completed on a full-time basis, normally Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm.

Links with industry/professional bodies

This course provides eligibility to apply for registration as a dietitian with the Health and Care Professions Council. It is also accredited by the British Dietetic Association.

Modules

15 credits: Food and Nutrition/ Principles of Nutrition Science/ Clinical Sciences/ Therapeutic Interventions/ Professional Studies/ Professional Practice/ Evaluation of Practice/ Pharmacology and Pharmacogenetics. You will also carry out practice placements, which you must pass but which do not carry any credit. If studying for an MSc, you will also complete a dissertation (60 credits).

Careers

Career prospects on completion of the course are varied. Most graduates normally choose to work within the NHS as dietitians. Others will work in health education, health promotion, general practice, private healthcare and government advisory posts. Opportunities also exist in the food and pharmaceutical industries in, for example: food labelling; nutrient profiling; product and recipe development; product evaluation and special diet foods. Some graduates may apply for the opportunity to study for a higher degree (MPhil or PhD).

Quick Facts

  • The MSc/ PgDip Dietetics course is well established, extremely popular, and well respected throughout the profession and has good graduate employability rates.
  • The teaching team includes four registered dietitians who have strong links with the dietetic profession both within Scotland and across the UK. 
  • The university’s clinically relevant research along with the broad range of experience of the teaching team ensures that the course remains current.

Programme Description

Our immersive distance learning programme places students at the heart of the operating theatre using the latest in virtual reality technology and allows for accelerated training in the rapidly developing areas of laparoscopic surgery.

A global leader in integrating technology enhanced learning, course director Dr Bijen Patel has pioneered this concept ever since creating the world’s first Masters Course in acquiring surgical skills by simulation in October 2005 (MSc Surgical Skills and Sciences) at the Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London.

Through a combination of theory and skills demonstrations delivered through the University’s 24/7 virtual learning platform, students will be able to tailor their learning in order to build confidence and master key surgical skills using a take-home simulator for regular hands-on practice.

In addition to acquiring key surgical skills essential for clinical practice, Students will gain a clear understanding of the concept and theories surrounding the issues of research and critical appraisal along with academic writing.
