You will complete the course in one year, studying September to September, taking modules totalling 180 credits, with 60 credits coming from a dissertation of around 15,000 words. The programme also includes a 10-day period of specially arranged clinical observation in the UK.

The programme also includes 10 days of supervised practice, personalised to the student’s needs. The placement takes place within one of the university’s partner healthcare organisations and will focus on developing competences appropriate to the particular clinical setting. 


Our teaching staff are all experts in their fields. Active in research, and many are leading clinicians at some of London’s top hospitals.

The course has a combination of lectures, seminars, and independent study. Your contact time will be 24 academic weeks, with 31 weeks for self-study.
