Course summary

The programme is designed to offer flexibility to working professionals through blended learning. You can tailor the course to your requirements by choosing to follow either the Leadership or Clinical pathway at PG Certificate, PG Diploma or Master’s level. If you are a UK student you will have the option of studying part-time.

The overarching philosophy of our programme is that advanced practice is all about reaching a level of practice, rather than a specific professional role. Suitable for all experienced health and care professionals and open to both national and international applicants, it reflects professional, UK-wide government and international benchmarks for advanced level practice for the health and social care workforces.? You will attain the contemporary knowledge and skills for advanced level practice. Our aim is to help you to develop an academic preparedness for an advanced professional practice role. All of this is based on the four pillars of advanced practice – clinical, research, education and management/leadership – and the five key principles: autonomous practice, critical thinking, values-based care, improving practice, and high levels of decision-making and problem-solving. By selecting the optional modules that are relevant to your area of advanced practice, you can tailor the course around your professional practice needs and across the pillars and principles. The emphasis of learning within each of the four pillars will be dependent on the pathway you have chosen, the level of study you’ve opted for and the modules you have selected. So you can build a qualification specific to your individual requirements.

ABOUT

Reflecting UK and international benchmarks, our Advanced Professional Practice programme has been designed to help experienced professionals meet these changes head-on, with improved ways of working and a positive impact on patient health.

Our programme is based on the four pillars of advanced practice: clinical, research, education, and management.

You will also further your skills in research appraisal, evidence-based practice, and decision-making, enabling you to deliver the best possible care.p>

You’ll achieve all of this on a course that’s both dynamic and fascinating, solving problems in small groups with inspirational teachers using their own cutting-edge research. And your learning will take place within a close-knit student body with a highly supportive culture

ASSESSMENT FOR YEAR 1
