The course adopts a blended learning approach with face-to-face teaching at the St. David’s Park site in Carmarthen. There are two part time student intakes per year, one in September and another in March. Please note the full-time route only runs at Health Board request, this is not open self-funding students.
You will also have access to the extensive facilities at the Singleton Park campus in Swansea.
Part one of the programme is the Post Graduate Diploma Award and consists of six core modules. For part two of the programme (MSc award) students have various options, however, it should be noted that any applicant wishing to undertake non-medical prescribing as part two of the programme will need to undergo a selection process as per professional body requirements. Enrolment on to the MSc programme does not give you automatic admission on to the non-medical prescribing programme. You would need to successfully complete part one of the programme before progressing on to part two of the programme.
We assess your learning using a variety of methods including essays, presentations and objective structured clinical examinations. The assessment for each module must be successfully completed.
