FURTHER INFORMATION

Our MSc Prosthodontics programme provides the busy General Dental Practitioner with a part-time educational route to acquire the skills and knowledge required of a Dentist with Special Interest (DwiSI). This programme focuses on contemporary practice, teaching evidence-based principles and systems to ensure an optimal outcome for the patient and practitioner.

During the course (2 years PGDip; 3 years MSc) you will be expected to attend up to 15 study/assessment days per year. Many of these sessions will be within the School of Medicine and Dentistry on the main UCLan Preston Campus, though some sessions will be timetabled in the UCLan Dental Clinic, where you will observe, assist and ultimately lead in clinical treatment. To accompany the study days, much of the course content, including lecture notes, PowerPoint slides, videos of lectures and assignments will be delivered to you via the University’s Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) allowing you to both prepare work for study days and undertake additional work independently from your home location.

Work in the early part of the course will comprise plenary lectures and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility and work on pigs heads and similar systems. As you move through the course you will progress to working on live patients under close supervision within UCLan Dental Clinic Facility. Here skills will be developed and assessed through Direct Observations of Procedural Skills (DOPS). The academic underpinning that supports this discipline will be developed though plenary lectures, directed reading and case-based discussions, which you and others in the group will be expected to prepare and lead. Group sizes are generally small (typically 12 per cohort) leading to an informal and supportive learning environment where you can ensure that your own learning needs are being met.

We must of course have assessments and examinations, these are designed to develop and test your core knowledge and skills at regular intervals throughout the programme. Assessments focus on your higher levels skills of diagnosis and planning, rather than simply remembering facts. Typical assessments would include analysis of given clinical cases OSCEs, mini clinical examinations and essays.

This exciting and innovative, part-time aesthetic medicine programme, presents the best available clinical evidence in non-surgical cosmetic interventions (NSCI), and combines it with clinical skills developed through experience and practice. This approach offers existing and aspiring aesthetic medicine practitioners an evidence-based programme of study in a growth specialism, that fully meets the qualification requirements recommended by Health Education England (Nov 2015).

One unique aspect of the UCLan aesthetic medicine programme is that not only do students learn about the latest research, products and technologies from leading clinicians, scientists and academics, but they also treat patients in a clinical facility, under the expert guidance and supervision of our clinical tutors. This unique evidence-based aesthetic medicine programme will prepare you to work safely and independently in an increasingly competitive sector, and one that will be more tightly regulated in the future.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

The three-year, part-time programme is delivered via blending learning, with a combination of face-to-face tutor led sessions, clinical hands-on sessions and self-directed learning, using the UCLan virtual learning platform (Blackboard).

You will be expected to attend up to 20 study/assessment days per academic year. Face-to-face and clinical sessions will be split between the excellent teaching facilities at the UCLan Preston Campus, and a CQC registered cosmetic aesthetic clinic (Discover Laser) in Burnley, Lancashire.

An emphasis on small-group teaching and training, gives you maximum contact with tutors and clinicians, with the benefit of academic support and clinical supervision at all stages of the programme.

The clinical hands-on sessions undertaken in the first and second year of study, prepare you to become a highly effective aesthetic medicine practitioner, and will develop the critical thinking skills required to undertake the third year dissertation.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Our UCLan healthcare professionals spend a significant part of their studies in the clinical setting, assessing patients in order to plan and deliver a range of safe and appropriate aesthetic medicine treatments. In a typical clinical session, students will inject botulinum toxins and dermal fillers, use laser and light based therapies, ‘recondition’ skin by chemical or physical rejuvenation. Advanced clinical sessions include interventions such as: thread lifts, carboxytherapy, platelet rich plasma, and skin resurfacing using laser and energy-based devices.

One element of the hands-on training that our UCLan students find critically important for their professional and personal development is the feedback and support provided by our clinical tutors. This evidence-based approach to aesthetic medicine builds the knowledge, confidence and competence we expect of our students.

Being an academic MSc programme, clinical knowledge and skills are developed and assessed throughout each year of study by a variety of formal examinations including; clinical OSCEs, case studies, oral presentations, reflective learning journals and portfolios.

An increasing number of healthcare professionals (HCPs) are now delivering aesthetic medicine interventions that treat a range of presenting conditions such as; photo damaged skin, vascular and pigmented lesions, lines and deep wrinkles, lax skin and facial volume loss.

Work in the early part of the course will comprise plenary lectures and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility working on simulated similar systems. As you move through the course you will progress to working on live patients under close supervision within UCLan Dental Clinic. Here skills will be developed and assessed through Direct Observations of Procedural Skills (DOPS). The academic underpinning that supports this discipline will be developed though plenary lectures, directed reading and case-based discussions, which you and others in the group will be expected to prepare and lead.

UCLan’s Advanced Certificate in Counselling for Depression offers professional development for counsellors who are already trained in Person-centred or Humanistic approaches and who have significant clinical experience. Hence Counselling for Depression (CfD) training intends to both build upon existing knowledge and, more particularly, to align counsellors’ practice with a competence framework which has strong links to research evidence and follows the Curriculum for Counselling for Depression produced by the National IAPT Team. In sum, this course provides you with a thorough grounding in the theory, evidence base and practice of CfD, allowing you to develop your knowledge and competence in psychological clinical assessment and CfD interventions in accordance with national guidelines.

COURSE OUTLINE

CfD is a manualised form of psychological therapy as recommended by NICE (NICE, 20094) for the treatment of depression. It is a form of psychological therapy derived from the Skills for Health humanistic competence framework devised by Roth, Hill and Pilling (2009), which provided the basis for the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for psychological therapists. This modality targets the emotional problems underlying depression along with the intrapersonal processes, such as low self-esteem and excessive self-criticism, which often maintain depressed mood. The therapy aims to help patients contact underlying feelings, make sense of them and reflect on the new meanings which emerge. This, in turn, provides a basis for psychological and behavioural change. You will attend for 7 taught days at the university, complete 80 hours supervised clinical practice, and attend for a minimum of 6 hours of clinical supervision.

An understanding of the past is key to understanding the present and the future, and the study of history is publicly important as well as personally enriching. This Masters of Research in History course offers a unique opportunity to combine the local and the global in historical research given the range and diversity of staff specialisms across three distinct strands – ‘Modern Britain and Ireland’, ‘European, American, African and Asian History’, and ‘Memory, Heritage and Place’. It builds upon a very successful and well-established undergraduate programme with a broad range of historical places and subjects from which you can choose to specialise, and provides guided taught support collectively and individually. Broaden and refine your research skills with an enhanced dissertation project with the opportunity to pursue a heritage or public history output, enabling you to become a specialist historical practitioner.

INDUSTRY LINKS

UCLan’s History department has a strong and productive relationship with schools, museums, libraries and archives across the region and students have developed placements with many of these in the past. History at UCLan works particularly closely with the People’s History Museum and the Labour Party Archive located there as well as with the Co-operative College and archive, Lancashire Archives based in Preston close to the main campus and the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Lancashire Fusiliers Museum and many other friends and partners across the north-west and further afield.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

Students will have full access to the resources of UCLan’s library including our Special Collections which contains the Joseph Livesey Collection, a cornerstone of the British temperance movement of the nineteenth century and other important archival material such as the Wainwright Collection of rare books on Irish Home Rule and Ulster Unionism.

The History staff at UCLan are all published historians who work in modern British, Irish, European, American, African and Asian history, mostly with a modern or contemporary focus. In addition to this, several members of the History team have experience and specialist knowledge of various aspects of heritage studies and public history, including memorials and memorialisation, oral history, business heritage and material culture.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Students will be given the opportunity to organise and run their own ‘mini-conference’ as part of the course and are expected to attend the monthly research seminars from visiting academics besides opportunities afforded for placements through History’s numerous links with educational and heritage institutions throughout the region. Visits will also be offered to both local archives and museums.

Graduates can expect to enhance and improve their current skills set providing a base or an advancement for careers in education, museums, archives, heritage groups or organisations as well as a variety of other professions which value the specialised research, organisational and intellectual capabilities provided by a taught postgraduate course such as this.

The History MRes provides opportunities for outstanding and committed students to progress to an MPhil/PhD in History, perhaps with their MRes dissertation becoming the foundation for future research trajectories.

One of the highlights of this course is the option of a public history type output from the dissertation research and the opportunity to make a real world impact. Students can therefore take the route of a single written dissertation of 24,000 words or a 12,000 word written dissertation and a companion exhibition, schools pack, podcast or website.

The Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) PGCert at UCLan has been developed in collaboration with the regional Local Authorities. Read more
The Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) PGCert at UCLan has been developed in collaboration with the regional Local Authorities. It provides an intense period of teaching and learning which draws on the expertise of AMHPs, academics, lawyers and service users and carers.

The programme reflects the needs of our local employers and stakeholders and we continually shape this in response to feedback. Agency colleagues and previous learners found UCLan’s AMHP programme to have a “supportive learning environment” in which they feel “keen and motivated to learn”, experiencing a “shift in thinking” towards the AMHP perspective and value base.

This course is specific to qualified and professionally registered mental health practitioners (Social Workers, Mental Health Nurses, Occupational Therapists or Clinical Psychologists) who are usually nominated and funded by their Local Authority to undertake AMHP training. It is also open to any applicants that meet the entry requirements, including practitioners working outside of a Local Authority. Applicants will need to have access to a suitable practice placement with a practice assessor who is a qualified AMHP.

DBS CHECKS

This course will involve access to children and/or vulnerable adults. You will be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB) and we will guide you through this process.

MSc Forensic Anthropology is designed to enable graduate students to develop skills in a variety of areas, which concern the processing, analysis and identification of human remains. This postgraduate course provides intensive training in developmental anatomy and osteology, forensic anthropology methods and theory, forensic taphonomy in theory and practice, crime scene investigation and the law, research methods and expert witness and presentation skills. The course has a focus on both domestic forensic anthropology work (e.g. UK and US) and forensic anthropology in the context of international humanitarian work and international criminal investigation.

UCLan’s postgraduate Forensic Anthropology course is the only forensic anthropology/osteology MSc in the UK to be based within a dedicated forensics department with state-of-the-art Crime Scene Investigation practical labs as well as excellent resources in Forensic Biology and Chemistry.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

We have a dedicated MSc Forensic Anthropology laboratory and radiography facilities with the full range of teaching casts as well as an extensive collection of experimentally induced projectile, blunt and sharp force trauma. We have an archaeological skeletal collection consisting of some 120 individuals from two sites, one late Medieval and one Victorian. UCLan’s TRACES facility for decomposition and taphonomic experimentation is located nearby and many students choose to conduct MSc dissertation research projects as part of the long term research agenda into estimating time since death. Staff members teaching the course are also active in research and consultancy. UCLan has an MSc-level Exchange with two US universities with forensic anthropology MA programmes, namely California State University at Chico and Wichita State University, both of which have active forensic anthropology consulting services.

Assessment is based on a combination of coursework and examination and includes an MSc dissertation project. Students are encouraged to present their research findings at international meetings.

OPPORTUNITIES

Graduating from this course, you will be well placed to undertake further research at the doctoral level, take up jobs in forensic anthropology laboratories, or to participate in human remains excavations.

A course module that will help you plan your career is available as a free choice module (called an elective), which you can study as part of your degree programme.

INDUSTRY LINKS

Completion of this programme of study provides 60 allowable credits towards the FGDP (UK) Career Pathway (Clinical); 30 allowable credits towards the Career Pathway (Other).

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

The programme encompasses a blended learning approach and consists of a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops, clinic training sessions and laboratory visits. Each person will be assigned a personal tutor for the entire programme.

Each module of your course will have a series of assessments and examinations - these are designed to develop and test your core knowledge and skills at regular intervals throughout the programme. Assessments focus on your higher levels skills of diagnosis and planning, rather than simply remembering facts. Typical assessments would include analysis of given clinical cases OSCEs and essays.

FURTHER INFORMATION

During the course (two years PgDip; three years MSc) you will be expected to attend up to 20 study / assessment days per year. Many of these sessions will be within the School of Dentistry on the main UCLan Preston campus, though some sessions will be timetabled in the adjacent UCLan Dental Clinic, where you will observe, assist and ultimately lead in clinical treatment. To accompany the study days, much of the course content, including lecture notes, PowerPoint slides, and assignments will be delivered to you via the University’s Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), allowing you to both prepare work for study days and undertake additional work independently from your home location.

Work in the early part of the course will comprise lectures, presentations and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility. As you move through the course you will progress to working on live patients under close supervision within the UCLan Dental Clinic. Here skills will be developed and assessed through Direct Observations of Procedural Skills (DOPS). The academic underpinning that supports this discipline will be developed though lectures, presentations, directed reading and case-based discussions, which you and others in the group will be expected to prepare and lead. Group sizes are generally small (typically 10 per cohort) leading to an informal and supportive learning environment where you can ensure that your own learning needs are being met.

The nuclear industry will continue to provide a significant proportion of the UK's energy needs over the next ten years and this percentage will increase as new nuclear power stations come on stream at the end of this decade and beyond. UCLan has developed strong relationships with nuclear employers which include Sellafield Ltd, National Nuclear Laboratory, BAE Systems at Barrow and Westinghouse Ltd. As a result, the course is uniquely designed and is delivered from a UCLan campus, offering employees already working within the sector and assisting employer led provisions, a flexible programme to fit in around their work patterns. Access to those people from the general engineering sector is also being encouraged.

Modules include:

Nuclear Fuel Cycle Technology (SC4101) 20 credits
The Regulation and Management of Nuclear Safety (SC4102) 20 credits
The Delivery of Nuclear Safety (SC4103) 20 credits

Involves a variety of assessments including field visit reports and group project presentations to test the ability and knowledge in specific nuclear safety projects - directed to the preparation of and participation in student-led project presentations. The programme offers modular delivery and will include lectures, seminars and field visits. Three modules delivered by blended methodology. Upon completion, the student will receive 60 credits.

The course will be taught at the UCLan Preston City Campus. It may incorporate visits to nuclear installations with simulation time to demonstrate the key nuclear safety characteristics of a nuclear facility; this will be subject to satisfactory security clearance from the nuclear industry.

Students entering this course are primarily from nuclear-related industries, in which case the programme offers a professional career development route and provides opportunities for professionals with experience of the nuclear safety and security industry to place this expertise in an academic context. In the case of non-nuclear-related students, it is expected that students will find a career within the nuclear Industry. The modules are cacheable modules that will lead onto either a PGDip and/or MSc.
