Course content

Core modules:

This PGCert programme will be the foundation for those who wish to progress to Diploma or Masters studies, planned to be available from 2015-16 onwards.


Teaching will be provided by a combination of academics with substantial experience of working within the healthcare sector and subject matter experts from the field.

Typical sessions will entail lectures, seminars and workshop formats, with a maximum of 30 attendees, while some elements of the course will be underpinned by online learning.

Students will have access to the full range of library and IT facilities provided by The University of Warwick.


There will be a 4,000 word assignment for each module, which will relate to the workplace. Assessments will be submitted online.
All assessments are designed to integrate the theoretical knowledge acquired during the programme with real world application in the workplace.
