Course summary

The MA in Clinical Education offers a supportive and challenging learning environment in which clinical educators can critically review and develop both theoretical perspectives and practical skills in the facilitation of learning and assessment. You will systematically and creatively analyse the complexities of clinical education, based on active and reflective learning from your own experiences in practice.

The programme will be run on a multi-professional basis, allowing practitioners such as medical doctors, dentists, nurses and allied health professionals to share their knowledge, experience and skills in teaching and supporting learning and the assessment or evaluation of teaching. You will improve your teaching skills and develop a critical understanding of how individuals learn in a clinical environment.

What will I study?

To exit the programme with a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Education (60 level 7 credits), you need to complete a core module in Research and Clinical Education (20 credits) then two further 20 credit modules from a choice of optional modules.

The optional modules are designed to allow you to explore different aspects of clinical education which are relevant to your role.

For the award of MA Clinical Education, you will need to complete the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Education and write a 60 credit (level 7) dissertation, which can include the preparation of a paper suitable for publication.

How will I study?

The course is delivered primarily using online learning through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The online learning is blended with a small number of face-to-face days. A typical module may include up to three face-to-face days, although due to the flexibility of the programme, attendance is not compulsory.

Career Prospects

The MA Clinical Education programme will provide specialist knowledge that would be useful for any career that involves the support of learning and assessment in practice. In addition, the programme will enable you to develop skills of critical analysis and research commensurate with postgraduate study.
