About the course

This programme is designed to support existing or aspirant leaders to develop their knowledge and understanding of leadership theories and frameworks. If you are employed in any health or social care discipline and you’re passionate about improving the quality of service, this programme will enhance your professional function as a leader to enable a more effective delivery of health and social care. This course is inter-professional in nature, suitable for individuals occupying both clinical and non-clinical roles.

You’ll study modules that explore the concept of leadership from a personal, professional and organisational perspective. And you'll develop your strategic thinking skills – gaining the knowledge and skills to generate and lead change within an organisational context. The flexible nature of this programme enables you to fit your study with other work and life commitments. You have the option of taking the course at PGCert or PGDip level, or as a full Masters degree.

This programme can be studied over 18-months full-time, and three years part-time. Start dates are available in January, June and September. For full-time study, this programme starts in September only.

What you'll study

The part-time MSc is usually studied over 3 years. You can also choose to study for the interim award of Post Graduate Certificate or Post Graduate Diploma. The sequencing of modules will depend on point of entry onto the programme (September, January or June for part-time programmes).

The full-time MSc is designed to be studied over a period of 18 months. Post Graduate Certificate and Diploma stage modules can be studied simultaneously but must be successfully completed prior to the dissertation stage.

Modules within the Post Graduate Certificate and Post Graduate Diploma stages can be taken on a ‘stand alone’ basis as individual units of study.
