As the course has been designed as a multidisciplinary module framework, it is intended that students will share their occupational and lived experiences, thereby enhancing understanding and multidisciplinary working and in doing so promote successful inter-professional practice.
It is acknowledged that some students may not initially wish to enrol for a full MSc programme; therefore there is the option to apply for a Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate or one of the single modules from within the Dementia Studies programme.
