MSc Leadership in Dementia Care

Course Description

With the population of the UK ageing, the number of people diagnosed with this condition is set to rise, so a high level of person-centred care needs to be upheld. As a student of this Master’s degree, you can play a major part in delivering that quality care and raising awareness and understanding of this condition.


As a student of this programme, you will be able to demonstrate an appreciation of the characteristics of dementia and apply it directly to dementia care. Students explore healthcare policy, rationalise strategies for care, and learn to expertly demonstrate critical and insightful self-awareness of attitudes, feelings, behaviours and coping mechanisms. The leadership focus of the degree ensures you know how to manage members of your team to be effectively trained and supported.


Assessment for this part time course will be given through a number of case studies and enquiry-based learning scenarios, portfolio activities, presentations and online contributions. The focus throughout the programme is on person-centred dementia care with an aim for all Dementia care across the UK to be delivered with compassion, respect, sensitivity and understanding within a supportive, knowledgeable environment.
