Course Summary

Health and Education MSc gives you the opportunity to explore specialist topics that match your personal and professional aspirations, in depth and at an advanced level. We are only able to accept international applications for the MSc. The PGCert and PGDip are for UK and EU applicants only.

You will benefit from the course if you are involved in teaching for a minimum of 15 hours per week within a health and social care setting. The course will develop your skills and knowledge for personal or professional advancement, with an emphasis on education. You can exit with PGDip & PGCert awards.

The programme is extremely flexible and is designed to meet the needs of health graduates in their continuing education and professional development. Each student designs, in consultation with the course leader, their own plan of study choosing from our wide range of modules.

You will be assigned a personal tutor and be able to consult with the course leader before choosing your modules and pathways. This ensures that you have a clear focus on your intended direction before you start the course.

How this course is delivered

We've made some changes to the way our courses are taught to keep everyone safe, connected and involved in university life. Now, students have a blend of on-campus and digitally enabled remote learning that provides lots of opportunities to interact and engage with lecturers and other students.


On course graduation, you will be equipped with skills that are directly transferable to health and social care-focused employment. Many of our previous course graduates have progressed into senior positions in their organisations.

During the periodic review of the course a range of local health-related employers are consulted, to ensure that the course content complements the priorities of employers as well as students. The career planning framework that is integral to this course guides students towards choosing an appropriate and personal route through the programme.
