Course summary

The programme is distinctive in that it is designed to be of interest to a wide range of health professionals and to those from other disciplines with an interest in health or health care delivery. Health professionals require both academic accreditation and flexibility when pursuing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and our postgraduate courses endeavour to fulfill these needs. This flexible course is available on a part-time (up to three years) or a modular route (up to 5 years). Additionally, modules can be taken as independent standalone units of study.

The aim of this flexible modular course is to broaden the student’s knowledge and understanding in the field of health sciences, and encourage personal and professional development. It is also about fostering greater insight into how different disciplines, through a programme of shared learning and teaching, can contribute to this aim.

TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT

Teaching sessions are led by a variety of experienced authorities in their field. Therefore, the student receives a wide knowledge base from academics and practicing experts. Teaching methods include: lead lectures, tutor and student led tutorials, problem solving scenarios, case studies, presentations, computer practical’s, small group work and the use of the Virtual Learning Environment.

The programme is assessed by a variety of techniques chosen to reflect the aims and objectives and teaching methods of individual modules, for example: critical review papers, essays, portfolios, presentations, interactive practical examinations, assessment in the field and use of the VLE (online assessments), and dissertation. The pass mark for all modules is 50%. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
