Course summary

Course summary

Embark on the career pathway for Healthcare Scientists, accredited by the National School of Healthcare Science by studying the MSc Clinical Science (Neurosensory Sciences) at Aston University. The scheme aims to provide an appropriately trained workforce to work in the NHS through clinical science training.

Professional accreditation

This course is accredited by the National School of Healthcare Science.

Course outline

The Department of Health has introduced a new career pathway for Healthcare Scientists. Students are employed within NHS Departments and released to undertake academic study.

This includes clinical science training to provide an appropriately trained workforce to work in the NHS. This requires the education and training of practitioners in the division of neurosensory science. This division is made up of 3 pathways:

  • Audiology
  • Neurophysiology
  • Ophthalmic & Vision Sciences.

Learning, teaching, assessment and staff

The majority of the teaching and learning material is delivered online via a virtual learning environment (known as Blackboard). You will be provided with a study guide for each module which ensures that you are aware of what material needs covering when. The first year is mostly assessed via coursework, so you are able to benchmark your abilities early on and to develop your skills in managing your own learning.

In the second and third years of the course you will undertake a research project, with an associated research methods module to develop your skills in this area.

You are on campus for short periods each term where you have the opportunity to participate in group activities, tutorials, skills laboratories and seminars.

Your future career prospects

This course sits within the Department of Health’s vision for the Healthcare Science workforce. The aim is to develop practitioners who can improve the scientific profile within healthcare and who have the requisite skills to enhance both the diagnosis and treatment of patients in the NHS.

The ageing population means that demand for assessment and treatment services is set to rise substantially over the coming years. Our graduates will be well placed to enter careers in hospitals, community-based practice and also related research areas. Previous graduates have become advanced practitioners or gone on to lead a section of service.

The programme is designed to formally meet the requirements of the NHS and builds on Aston’s established links and extensive experience of health education.
