Course content

Our MSc Specialist Practice (Cancer) course is a partnership between The University of Manchester and The Christie School of Oncology aimed at nurses and other health professionals who want to develop their professional skills and clinical practice within oncology.

You will develop an expert knowledge base, higher decision-making skills and professional competencies to deliver care within the integrated multi-professional clinical teams that will form the basis of future healthcare delivery.

The course consists of a wide range of taught generic professional skills and advanced clinical practice units that can be undertaken individually as CPD or as part of a postgraduate qualification.

The MSc can be studied full-time (one year) or part-time (up to three years), allowing you to fit study around your other commitments.

The delivery format of the course has been tailored to offer a large degree of flexibility, making it attractive and accessible to individuals currently working within the NHS both locally and nationally.
