Course content

This programme is the culmination of work to develop healthcare chaplaincy as a profession. It is available to healthcare chaplains and graduates considering healthcare chaplaincy as a profession. Applicants who are considering entering healthcare chaplaincy will also have to satisfy the eligibility criteria for registration with the UK Board of Healthcare Chaplaincy. The University of Glasgow has no locus in this decision.

Why this programme

  • It enables chaplains to evidence the Spiritual and Religious Care Capabilities and Competences for Healthcare Chaplains and demonstrate fitness to practice as a Healthcare Chaplain and so become Board Registered.
  • You will learn to assess and meet spiritual and religious care needs, develop educational support for quality spiritual and religious care and facilitate professional role development and staff support.
  • The programme has been commissioned by NHS Education for Scotland and it enables chaplains to evidence the Spiritual and Religious Care Capabilities and Competences for Healthcare Chaplains and demonstrate fitness to practice as a healthcare chaplain and so become Board Registered, subject to satisfying eligibility criteria of the UK Board of Healthcare Chaplaincy.

Programme structure

The programme is designed as a part-time programme of study days and distance learning to enable working chaplains to study and gain a professional qualification. 

Core courses

  • Providing Spiritual and Religious Care in Health and Social Care
  • Professional Practice in Spiritual and Religious Care in Health and Social Care
  • Advanced Healthcare Practice.

Applicants who do not meet the eligibility criteria for registration with the UK Board of Healthcare Chaplaincy and meet the criteria for admission to the MSc (MedSci) Advanced Practice in Healthcare can exit with a certificate in Advanced Practice in Health Care.

The University of Glasgow endeavours to run all programmes as advertised. In exceptional circumstances, however, the University may withdraw or alter a programme. For more information, please see: Student contract.
