Course summary

Around the world, health and social care services are coming together to prioritise the support that individuals, families and their communities need. The level of practice needed to inform and contribute meaningfully to this global movement is being realised. As a result, advanced practice masters level qualifications for registered health and social care practitioners are in demand.

Glasgow Caledonian University is recognised as an institution committed to transforming lives through education and innovating for social and economic impact. The University's Masters in Advanced Practice has been designed in consultation with policy advisors, clinicians, students and patient representatives. We recognise the importance of service user and carer perspectives when it comes to defining a flexible approach to practice experience and in advancing core and area specific levels of clinical competence.

MSc Advanced Practice at Glasgow Caledonian University gives you exposure to worldwide health and social care perspectives. You will explore further the need to integrate service users and carers views into policy and practice development. And you will develop the confidence to embrace and promote professional leadership - so that you can contribute meaningfully to the modernisation and integration of health and social care delivery.

You will find yourself fully supported and yet challenged, we base our learning and teaching on the following principals:

  • engaged learning
  • divergent thinking
  • flexible, inclusive, accessible learning
  • broad and deep learning
  • global learning
  • real world problem solving
  • entrepreneurship
  • responsible leadership and professionalism

MSc Advanced Practice offers three exit points: MSc, PgD and PgC. You can also choose to specialise and graduate with a named award from Glasgow Caledonian University: MSc Advanced Practice (Musculoskeletal Health) or MSc Advanced Practice (Education in Academic and Practice Settings), a teaching qualification with HEA Fellowship. These named awards are available with a predefined list of module choices to ensure your study is appropriate to your field, giving you the best learning experience to suit your needs.
