Course Description

Course Overview

​The programme is designed to be flexible and integrate learning already available within the Cardiff School of Health Sciences, and other universities. The integration of the programme for the individual will be focused by the individual learner's needs. This approach fosters interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary learning, which encourages best practice, innovation and cross-fertilisation. Participants may undertake modules offered at other Universities to meet their individual learning needs, provided that the modules are approved by Cardiff Metropolitan University.
