This MSc in Nursing Studies is designed to raise your practice to an advanced level, enabling you to progress as a senior practitioner, educator, researcher or manager.

The course covers modules in each of the following:
One module can be chosen from the four optional modules to make up the 9-module MSc or 6-module PGDip. For the three module PGCert, you would take Mastering Professional Nursing Practice, Evidence-based Practice and Leadership. In addition, for the PGDip, you would do all of the compulsory modules (except the dissertation), plus one optional module.
Please note: as courses are reviewed regularly as part of our quality assurance framework, the list of modules may vary from that shown here.
If you choose to enrol on the on-campus course, four of your modules will be delivered using a blended learning approach involving attendance at our Marston Road site in Oxford, and two of your modules will be delivered via distance learning.
The distance learning course provides exciting opportunities for learners who do not attend on-campus but want to study to an advanced level in a stimulating and dynamic online environment. In addition to accessing our virtual learning environment you will have the use of a range of technologies such as online real-time video and audio communication tools. This means that students can feel supported by a variety of staff including the librarians and learning technologists.
Coursework assessments are varied in style and include (but are not limited to) essays, critical reviews, case studies and virtual presentations. MSc students will also write a dissertation on a topic of their choice. Additional materials are provided to distance learning students to guide you during your studies; these include study guides and access to an interactive online learning environment and real-time classrooms.
This course is an opportunity to become part of an online global and dynamic community of nurses who connect and learn together.You are encouraged to develop your digital literacy and are therefore introduced to a range of technologies such as Moodle, Skype, real time classrooms, social networking and electronic bibliographic software.
There are also extracurricular opportunities such as support to write for peer-reviewed publication.
