The flexible nature of the course means that you can complete the modules in any order (with the only pre- requisite that a research methods module is completed prior to the dissertation). We will accept credits at Level 7 from other universities providing they can be mapped to our course learning outcomes. Once accepted on to the course, you will meet with the programme leader to plot your route to award and who will support you during your programme of study at the University of West London.
We recommend that students start the course with two modules: Role Development (20 credits) Becoming an Advanced Practitioner (40 credits) Generally, you will study 60 credits worth of modules each year unless you have prior learning which can be credited against the course learning outcomes at the appropriate level.
Role Development has three face-to-face days and three electronic study learning days and runs between October and December, whilst Becoming an Advanced Practitioner has six face-to-face days, and six electronic study days and runs from January to July.
Year 2 has three mandatory modules which are leadership specific:
Health and Social Care; Strategic Choices Managing Quality Managing Relationships Health and Social Care; Strategic Choices generally runs from October through to early January, this is followed by Managing Quality, which runs from January to April, and the final module, Managing Relationships runs to start of the summer. Prior learning can be accredited via our APEL process if you have already taken similar modules at level 7.
Year 3 starts with a 20 credit module, Research Methods (September to December) and leads to your Dissertation module (40 credits) which will start in January, and complete by September.
You will need a first degree or equivalent professional qualification. If you do not have a first degree, but possess substantial work experience, you are still invited to apply. In these cases, you will be asked to present a portfolio and qualifying essay, to demonstrate your potential for studying at Master’s level. You will also need to submit an extended curriculum vitae which must demonstrate evidence of personal and professional development.
