Diabetes Care and Management - MSc


Course Description

The MSc Diabetes Care and Management programme equips Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) from all backgrounds with the in-depth knowledge and understanding required to deliver the best care to patients with diabetes.

Diabetes is a disease that is on the increase worldwide. The demands on HCPs are rising at an alarming rate and HCPs need the education basis to provide competent appropriate care.

The programme takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of diabetes, allowing integration of key discipline areas in the understanding of the biology of the disease, its diagnosis and the understanding of the complications of diabetes, their prevention and management. It emphasises the importance of research and development in the subject area and exposes you to the latest advances in the understanding of health and disease; equipping you with the competencies to take part in active research.

Many of our graduates go on to work in the field of diabetes – in general practice, in hospitals and in industry. Some with a suitable medical background choose to study for the UK General Medical Council exams (PLAB 1 and 2) and go on to work in the NHS.

This programme has several different available start dates and study options - for more information, please view the relevant web-page:
