Course content

Our Health MSc gives you the opportunity to explore specialist topics that match your personal and professional aspirations, in depth and at an advanced level.

The course will benefit you if you are involved in public or community services in a professional or voluntary capacity and want to develop your skills and knowledge for personal or professional advancement.

The programme is extremely flexible, and is designed to meet the needs of health graduates in their continuing education and professional development. Each student designs, in consultation with the course leader, their own plan of study choosing from our wide range of modules.

You will be assigned a personal tutor and be able to consult with the course leader before choosing your modules and pathways. This ensures that you have a clear focus on your intended direction before you start the course.

Our high quality teaching and research are renowned, and have an applied focus. We have established strong links with specialist practice educators to ensure the provision of support and guidance both within the university and in practice.

We have a dedicated team of academic staff who are actively engaged in internationalising the health and social care curriculum.

Course structure

This course can be studied either full- or part-time and the modules are delivered at different times throughout the year.

The course is delivered in a variety of ways, and is flexible enough to meet the needs of part-time students. Delivery is typically via e-learning, lectures, seminars, and workbooks for work-based learning.

Each module has approximately 30 hours' lecturer contact and approximately 170 hours of individual study. Individual modules employ varying learning and teaching strategies.

At the start of the course you will consult with the course leader and agree a tailored study plan of module choices for the course. This will be created from the choice of modules available on our Postgraduate Education Framework, to suit your individual professional, academic and personal needs.

Areas of study

You will study a core research-related module from a selection of four titles. These are offered on different campuses and also online so that you can work in the way that best suits you.

Current students are from a range of backgrounds and choose an academic route that accelerates their professional and personal development. For example, a health professional may decide to study a range of clinical modules but a student from a social care background may choose a range of social and health-focused modules.

The dissertation project is an exciting element of this course and again is guided by your career route or employer requirements. This is an opportunity for you to put into practice the transferable masters-level skills gained from the taught modules. These include analysing and interpreting data from a range of sources, evaluating and problem solving, and developing research skills and project management skills, in order to produce a science-based project appropriate to your chosen pathway.

One research module from the following:

Research Theory and Practice
Research Methods and Critical Appraisal

Study abroad

The School of Health Sciences offers an opportunity to add a European dimension to your learning and development within the context of nursing or midwifery through our international work-based learning module.

If you have a particular clinical interest, for example public health nursing, and are interested in how this is delivered and practised in Scandinavia we can arrange for you to access a placement area with one of our partners in Sweden or Denmark. We can also help structure your experience through establishing focused learning outcomes and detailed preparation.

Our courses are vibrant and many of our academic staff have international health and education experience. Some are members of groups such as Sigma Theta Tau and the Florence Nightingale Scholars.

Careers and Employability

On course graduation, you will be equipped with skills that are directly transferable to health and social care-focused employment. Many of our previous course graduates have progressed into senior positions in their organisations.

During the periodic review of the course a range of local health-related employers are consulted, to ensure that the course content complements the priorities of employers as well as students.

The career planning framework that is integral to this course guides students towards choosing an appropriate and personal route through the programme.
