What our students say
These are comments from a former student of our parallel programme, Advanced Practice in Health Care:
"Studying for my MSc at the University of Glasgow was such a positive experience for me both personally and professionally. I knew from the first day of starting the MSc that I had made the right choice to study in the Nursing & Healthcare School, and although I was the only physiotherapist on the course I was made to feel part of the school immediately and this continued throughout the two years. The course allowed me time to learn and engage with my fellow health professionals, gaining insight and a different perspective into their nursing practices and knowledge which I would not have been able to do in clinical practice. Over the two years I realised that research was an area that I thoroughly enjoyed and the MSc harnessed this interest and lead me to apply for a PhD fellowship with Diabetes UK. I successfully gained the Sir George Alberti fellowship and commenced a three year PhD with the support of the Nursing & Healthcare School. As a post graduate research student within the school I have been involved in grant applications, publications and presentations at conferences, I have a far greater awareness, interest and enthusiasm for health research than I ever did in my 10 years as a clinician as a result of this MSc."
There is a strong research culture within the Nursing & Health Care School. During the programme you will learn how to write a research proposal and will carry this through to a dissertation project. You will be taught by staff who regularly publish papers and contribute to conferences.
There are opportunites to take your study further by completing a Masters by Research or a PhD. We aim to be an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research. Research within the school is undertaken with the view to positively influence the quality of health care locally, nationally and internationally.
Virtually all of our graduates in our parallel multiprofessional programme Advanced Practice in Health Care, within 1 year of completion, have gained promotion within their specialism. Many remain in clinical practice and become specialists and advanced practitioners in their chosen fields.
Increasingly our graduates are returning for PhD study, to further embrace the evidence based approaches to clinical care.
Many decide that education is their career destination and return to the department to gain further expertise in a teaching role, both undergraduate and postgraduate.
This programme help to prepare clinicians in many disciplines eg. Physios, for the dynamic nature of care delivery.
