Course summary

If you are looking for a unique nursing programme to explore your field of professional practice and acknowledge your advanced level of skill and knowledge in your profession, the MSc Professional Practice is for you.

The course is for health professionals who want to advance their practice or require specialist modules, offering a unique and comprehensive educational experience for UK and international health and social care practitioners. Its flexible structure and module choices allow you to create a programme that can be individually tailored to support your professional practice.

Suitable for experienced and inexperienced healthcare practitioners, the MSc Professional Practice facilitates the use of the latest research, and aims to transform your practice, and improve the quality of care.

This Professional Practice course focuses on the professional development necessary for higher level practice and leadership roles. On successful completion, you will have gained an internationally recognised qualification that is designed to prepare healthcare professionals to take up posts within health and social services globally.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

There are three exit points – Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and Master's level.

Assessment

Assessment methods include written assignments mainly based on issues from practice, presentations, scenario based role plays and critical literature reviews.

Careers

The planning of this MSc Professional Practice has taken into account the development of new roles in the fields of health and social care. Students will focus on the latest research and development evidence for their professional role. As a result, this award will meet the requirements of the demanding and dynamic environments that health and social care practitioners work in today.

Employers value and welcome international healthcare professionals who have gained a Masters degree within the UK. Within the faculty, our engagement and partnership with numerous organisations has led to high levels of post-study employment both within the NHS and within the independent sector. In addition, many international graduates gain employment in diverse areas, for example graduates who are nurses have secured jobs in countries such as Canada, Australia and the Emirate States.
