The Course


The MSc Advanced Practice is a generic programme with seven specific pathways and can lead to the award of the specifically named degree: MSc Advanced Practice (Audiology); MSc Advanced Practice (Dietetics); MSc Advanced Practice (Housing); MSc Advanced Practice (Musculoskeletal Studies); MSc Advanced Practice (Public Health Emergencies); MSc Advanced Practice (Speech and Language Therapy); MSc Advanced Practice (Sport and Exercise Nutrition); MSc Advanced Practice (Healthcare and Wellbeing).

It is intended that the programme provides for flexible, variable progression that is responsive to student and employer continuous professional learning needs and the constantly changing practice environment. The programme has been designed to meet the four pillars of Advanced Practice. The modules will be delivered in a blended learning pattern (blocks of teaching with on-line resources) as far as possible.

Each module is assessed by coursework; the type varies according to the modules and can include the completion of a portfolio, presentations, reflections, reports and case studies. All the modules are externally moderated. Wherever possible students will be offered formative assessments and feedback.

The Professional working at Masters Level will be able to lead and contribute to developments in their profession through a more pro-active, critical and reflective approach. Additionally they will be an agent of change, a leader and act as an advocate of their profession. Employability will be enhanced by professions who undertake modules on a CPD basis and NHS professionals will be able to use the awards towards gaining recognition as an Advanced Practitioner. Students can exit at Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma levels.
