Course summary

This master's course provides professionals with a forum to encourage the synthesis of experience, knowledge and new learning and to debate contemporary issues. This is within a collaborative, multi-professional community, taught and online. The course encourages critical thinking and forward planning in all areas of health care, in the UK and internationally. You will have the opportunity to focus on several key areas: Expert Practice; Professionalism; Leadership & Management; Education and Practice; Service Development and Change, including legal, ethical, cultural and societal issues.

All professionals are now expected to undertake skills that were not part of their initial education to meet the needs of a more flexible approach to health care provision. New roles are being developed and the minimal level for academic, management, research and consultant posts requires that all professionals have continued their academic education to master's level.

Assessment

All modules will be assessed and a range of different types of assessment strategies are used on the programme. Depending on the module of study and the mode of delivery, these may include for example: written assignments, reflective tasks, case presentations, portfolio’s, peer observation, OSCEs, Viva’s, clinical assessments, project/grant applications, dissertation. You are expected to attempt all required assessment for each module for which you are registered, and to do so at the times scheduled unless authorised extensions, special arrangements for disability, or extenuating circumstances allow you to defer your assessment.

Opportunities

Students may wish to transfer from the MSc Midwifery to enter the Professional Doctorate when they have completed the Post Graduate Diploma. Students are requested to seek advice and support from the Course Leader to ensure their profile is appropriate in meeting the admissions criteria of this programme.
