Part time study
A programme planning meeting with the Programme Leader will be arranged prior to choosing your modules. This meeting will allow you to focus on the specific modules you wish to study, discuss any accreditation of prior learning and consider whether you wish to choose a work based learning approach to your final project (dissertation) or a traditional research methods/dissertation route.

Core modules

Students undertaking this programme have to successfully complete two core modules, research methods; either IPL 4001 Social research methods (30 credits) or WBS 4630 Advanced Practitioner Enquiry (30 credits). For the award of the masters degree, a dissertation, either IPL 4095 MSc Dissertation (60 credits) or WBS 4760 Work Based Learning Project module (60 credits) must be completed.

Optional modules

Please contact the Programme Leader prior to selecting your optional modules. A list of the modules that may be available can be found on our CPD health webpages.
