Entry and attendance requirements
To apply for the course you need to have a good MSc/MA/MPhil or equivalent qualification in an area relevant to your practice, and ideally be employed in an establishment that will permit appropriate professional and research practice.
All students are expected to attend an informal interview with a member of the course team, which will include a discussion of the research and professional development project that you wish to undertake in Part 2 of the course.
Students should be able to complete the programme within three to five years of part-time study. However, as health and social care professionals, we understand the need for flexibility and to fit study around personal and work commitments.
Attendance for Part 1 will average one/two days per month depending on the unit being studied. Typically, students will be required to attend the University for up to 25 days for the whole of Part 1.
Attendance for Part 2 will only be required for tutorials, seminars and oral presentations.
