Course Summary


This course will develop your professional practice, both as an educator and, in the practical applications of your learning, in your workplace and the practice of others you work with to provide high quality care to enhance the experience of service users.

Choosing between a 40 Credit (12,000-word) and 60 Credit (18,000-word) Dissertation you can decide whether to study 4 or 3 Simulation Modules together with the core MSc Healthcare Practice content.

With contributions from service-users including via an innovative collaborative Impact Forum, the generic nature of the course supports all students from a wide variety of professions and roles to apply learning to their individual circumstances and develop advanced professional practice.

Your future career

Enhancing your knowledge and understanding will contribute to your career progression and evidence that you are advancing practice according with professional skills frameworks. In addition, the skills you gain will enable you to write for professional journals and/or present at conferences, sharing best practice and raising your professional profile. Your postgraduate qualification could also help you to stand out in an increasingly competitive employment market, supporting you to consider senior, specialist or advanced roles within the health and social care arena, the independent and voluntary sector or education. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.


This module considers how to determine whether HSBE or a simpler form of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is the most efficient and effective modality and how HSBE Faculty remain prepared to critically assess, select and employ an ever-increasing range of HSBE interventions. Encouraged to synthesise and extrapolate beyond current evidence, you will consider how the curriculum and faculty may respond to the disruption the digital age will have on the relationship between educators, practitioner(s) and service users, and how HSBE may be best integrated into that curriculum.
