Ranking and student feedback
About this Course The health and care sectors are forever adapting to new challenges and new forms of treatment. 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 of patient health. Our programme is based on the four pillars of advanced practice: clinical, research, education, and management. You’ll develop your expertise in leadership, innovation, and change management. You will also further your skills in research appraisal, evidence-based practice, and decision-making, enabling you to deliver the best possible care. Designed to offer flexibility to working professionals and 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. Overview The overarching philosophy of our programme is that advanced practice is all about 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 gain 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 which 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. Course structure You will have the choice of two pathways, Clinical or Leadership, each of which provides a range of core and optional modules. Depending on the modules you choose to complete, you could exit with a PG certificate (60 credits required), PG Diploma (120 credits required) or MSc Advanced Professional Practice (180 credits required). Some of the optional modules are subject to entry requirements, and in some cases, professional, statutory or regulatory body requirements apply. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
