Health, Social Care, Public and Community Sectors (Professional Practice)

This Masters degree is a flexible, practice-based qualification for professionals working across a wide range of public and community services in health, social care and associated sectors.

Where appropriate, this can be done in partnership with an employer in support of their organisational objectives.
