We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
CIPPET offers part-time postgraduate programmes to prepare allied health professionals to practise as either independent or supplementary prescribers and to meet the standards set by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
The programme comprises teaching and learning, which include taught days, self-directed study time, assessment and workplace-based learning (the 78 hours of learning in practice).
Details of our accreditation can be found at HPCP accreditation.
Students studying the programme will be assessed at level 7, leading to a Postgraduate Certificate (60 academic credits).
Applicants can choose between studying one day a week (Thursdays) or on our intensive weekend programme for those who want a more flexible study arrangement.
