Our programme will produce managers and practitioners able to improve the patient experience through innovation, integrated care, technological improvements and their position at the forefront of advances in healthcare.
The curriculum of this programme reinforces the need for professionals to demonstrate improvement in their care delivery through high-level, expert knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the context of healthcare management and delivery.
Staff in the School of Health Sciences are motivated to support students to meet the challenges they face in their practice with a solution-focussed approach, utilising the existing evidence base whilst demonstrating creativity in their own research approaches.
The full-time non-endorsed programme is studied over one academic year. The endorsed part time programmes are studied over five academic years (60 months).
There are a range of pathways available for MSc programmes. These variants are made clear to students in all marketing material and student handbooks.
