Course summary

Health and Social Care by Negotiated Learning offers a unique opportunity for you to design your own learning programme to reflect your personal and/or professional needs. You can choose from a huge range of modules and study at your own pace.

You’ll be able to develop and negotiate your course programme with our team, choosing from existing modules from across the University’s provision.

You can also take key modules at other universities if they’re not offered at Staffordshire University, with the credits you gain contributing to your award.

And if you already have credits from previous study in the past five years, they can contribute to your award if they meet your negotiated Award Learning outcomes.

The course offers many ways to individualise your programme of study, including:

  • Studying at your own pace and convenience
  • Negotiating aims and learning outcomes tailored to your experience and needs
  • Negotiating the nature and form of your learning activities
  • Negotiating an appropriate method of assessing your learning
  • Negotiating the title of your course

To facilitate this, a Negotiated Learning Advisor will support you throughout the course, enabling you to develop a Learning Contract that demonstrates at least 25% of the award is achieved through negotiated learning modules.

You can also use any existing academic credits you may have to contribute towards the development and outcome of the course.

We also welcome applications from groups of students whose learning needs are very similar and who may form a cohort. These cohorts could be supported by an employer or a sponsor, or they may be individuals with a shared health or social care work-based or career orientation.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Health and Social Care (by negotiated study).

Assessment

The way you’re assessed will depend on the modules and study modes you choose when negotiating your course plan.

Careers

The course will help you develop advanced skills in specific health and social care provision, and your ability to think and act more strategically.
