The course offers a varied and flexible programme of practical and academic study. Applicants may complete a 'generic route' in which they self-select modules of study or a specific pathway that allows the exploration of specialist areas of practice; including the development of advanced skills in autonomous practice.
There is provision for Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL), dependent upon the choice of study route followed, and a flexible framework offering interim awards (postgraduate certificates and diplomas) as well as a full MSc. All routes include compulsory research modules.
Compulsory core modules
• Research methods (15 credits)
• Dissertation research project or work-based project or systematic review (60 credits)
Applicants may choose to complete a traditional research project, work-based project or a systematic review for their dissertation. This offers flexibility and allows you to undertake a dissertation which will have meaning and relevance to their particular professional circumstances.
All named pathways include at least one specialist compulsory module. Most also include self-selected option modules:
Most modules are available on a free-standing basis. You may choose further option modules from the full range of postgraduate courses offered by Kingston and St George’s. This allows applicants to build a personalised programme of study to meet their specific development needs.
