Course summary

Get all the benefits of studying in London, without being tied to the UK healthcare sector. This one-year course allows you to develop the skills to manage and deliver healthcare anywhere in the world.


The Clinical Nursing MSc course is a flexible study pathway that builds on your existing clinical experience and skills, enabling you to lead and support the development and subsequent delivery of evidence-based practice. The course begins with the core modules Measurement and Evaluation for Healthcare Practice and Developing Professional Leadership.

The 12,000-word dissertation gives you a chance to put your new analytical skills to use. You can choose between a systematic review or, if you’re more clinically focused, a service evaluation.

The course lasts one year, from September to September. It includes a 10-day placement at one of our partner institutions.

You will also have the freedom to choose from a range of additional optional modules to reflect your choice of research pathway. You will complete the course in one year, studying September to September, taking modules totalling 180 credits, with 60 credits coming from a dissertation of around 15,000 words. The programme also includes a 10-day period of specially arranged clinical observation in the UK.

The programme also includes 10 days of supervised practice, personalised to the student’s needs. The placement takes place within one of the university’s partner healthcare organisations and will focus on developing competences appropriate to the particular clinical setting.

Course purpose

Maybe you want to discover how research can improve your clinical practice. Perhaps you’re thinking of moving into an academic career. Or you might be a recent graduate wanting to reinforce your knowledge before starting work. Whatever your goals, an MSc from King’s is a great start to achieving them.

You’ll learn how to put research into practice and how to develop your leadership ability. King’s experts and your clinical placement will also help you improve your clinical skills during the course. We run core modules in key areas, and you can also choose from a range of optional subjects based around your interests.

We’re a friendly, diverse community, with students from a huge range of countries. With our student societies, extracurricular seminars, and London on your doorstep, it will be a rewarding year to put on your CV.
