This programme will assist practitioners in gaining advanced knowledge and skills to effectively manage the demands of rapidly changing, and increasingly complex health and social care practice environments.

This programme is delivered by a combination of block courses and online. A candidate may take up to four years to complete this programme.

What You'll Learn

There are three pathways for completing your Masters:

  • Research in Practice
  • Practice Development
  • Industry-based Project

How You'll Study

The focus of learning in the programme will include working reflexively with clients and communities within differing interprofessional collaborations and relationships. It will enable you to engage in transformative learning strategies that build on the strengths, knowledge, skills and relationships acquired as experienced practitioners. This practice based learning approach will enhance your ability to engage in future professional and work related challenges.

Focus on Research

The Centre for Health and Social Practice has a flourishing research culture. Excellence in research is achieved through adopting a holistic philosophy and pursuing an interprofessional and multi-method approach.

Career/Further Opportunities
