Course description

The MSc Leadership in Health and Social Care is suitable for a wide range of professionals and those involved in influencing the provision and delivery of a changing and expanding health and social care agenda. Increasingly, practitioners and managers are being called upon to lead change within their organisation on both clinical and strategic fronts. Study can be completed as a full-time route or in a part-time modular approach which is ideal for busy professionals.

This programme will:

  • Extend and progress the knowledge and skills you already have and how you may apply them to your own individual setting
  • Enable you to assess and support the impact your actions will have on practice
  • Provide an opportunity to respond to emerging career pathways allowing you to tailor your learning needs in a flexible and creative way.

As a programme team we are aware that the health and social care workforce is required to have a wide range of specific and transferable skills and this programme offers you the diversity and flexibility that will help you develop these skills. The programme has two intakes per year in January and September, however international full-time on-campus students will commence in September only until numbers of applicants dictate the addition of a further intake.

The course duration is 1 year full time and up to 6 years part time.
