The Master's Degree has been designed to mirror long term and chronic condition management within the National Health Service (NHS) and government initiatives.
This course is structured as either a one year full-time or three year part-time modular taught Master's degree.
Learning is assessed through short essays, multiple choice examination, research proposal, critically appraised topics, portfolio development and poster presentations.
Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, this course will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. This means that some teaching will be done online and some will be on campus. The online teaching, where you will be physically apart from your lecturer, can be ‘live’ with your lecturer present and where you’ll be able to interact. Some of it may be self-directed which means that you can access the learning materials at a time to suit you.
You’re face-to-face, on campus sessions will be a mixture of:
Clinical skills and practical sessions
Action learning sets
Clinical competency outcomes
Student welfare support
Your online learning and teaching may include:
Peer Group Work
Academic consultation office hours
Virtual OSCE practice/assessment
Hot topic debates and discussions
Self-paced module content
