Course Summary

The MSc Diabetes Care and Management is multidisciplinary, bringing together key insights from multiple fields. During this masters degree you will learn about best practices in health management and diabetes from a broad range of perspectives.

This course covers: Understand the biology of the disease; Learn about preventing, diagnosing and managing diabetes; Recognise diabetes complications; Explore the latest research in the field; Survey up-to-date advances in management and care; Acquire the skills to collaborate on active clinical research. Keeping the programme career-focused, our diabetes care and management masters students undertake a number of clinical attachments at local hospitals. This opportunity helps them solidify their skills and make a positive impact on patients in a real-world setting. Our graduates go on to do good work in general practice, hospitals and clinics. Some choose to study for the UK General Medical Council GMC exams (PLAB 1 and 2) and go on to work in the NHS.

We use a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure that you have both the necessary knowledge and understanding of business and management and a portfolio of intellectual and personal skills. Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include unseen examinations, class tests, essays, management reports, case studies, presentations, and group work.

The learning and teaching methods we use ensure that our programme is both vocationally relevant and academically challenging. Our approach is student-centred, practical, participative and relevant to the needs of employers. We've moved away from the traditional teacher-centric learning to a more independent learning approach, where you are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills.
