This part-time programme is ideal for you if you are a healthcare practitioner employed in a health and social care practice and you would like to develop advanced clinical skills in this field.

Course details

Normally a minimum of two years post-registration clinical practice is expected. The curriculum has been designed within the context of developing autonomous practitioners with advanced clinical reasoning skills, with the ability to critically synthesise information from evidence. The programme produces graduates who can apply research and critical perspectives relevant to their healthcare profession and practice. This could be from practical and/or theoretical perspectives. This is driven by our understanding of the drivers for change within the NHS, such as the NHS mandate and Five Year Forward View. Depending on the modules you choose, you may study at the University, through distance learning or through a blended approach. The clinically orientated modules use practical and technology-enhanced activities to facilitate learning. Many of the clinical core modules require your attendance to ensure you achieve advanced clinical skills. Your transition to master's level is managed in the introductory core module Evidence Based Practice. A group tutor supports you, providing feedback to help you grow in confidence as you progress to master’s level. Your programme leader acts as a personal tutor and facilitates tutorials allowing you to discuss your progress.

What you study

The course combines core modules with a selection of specialist clinical modules. You choose your clinical modules from a pathway handbook, applying advanced skills to your practice area.

You can also choose a master’s-level option from the Education and Training Opportunities CPD brochure. In your final year you carry out an independent research study.

Year 1 core module
-Evidence-based Practice

Teaching

We use a variety of approaches to teaching including learning sets, [email protected], lectures and seminars. You can opt for a traditional taught approach, a distance-learning route or a combination of both. Clinical skills modules use a hands-on practical approach. You focus on an area of interest that you can develop in subsequent study, such as within the Advancing Practice module and/or your dissertation.

We use a variety of assessment types challenge your strengths and develop your key transferable skills. Assessments are either summative or formative.

Summative assessments are marked and count towards your final module mark. This traditionally takes place at the end of a module.
Formative assessment is used to support and develop your learning. You are set an assignment and given a mark or feedback. This doesn’t count towards your final module mark. It’s a great way to check your progress and get feedback on how to develop your assignments.
