Health and Social Care Student Designed Award

The course design gives students maximum flexibility and allows their learning to directly relate to their career and clinical interests. Students are able to choose from a very wide range of existing modules in the health and social care portfolio and add academic credit for learning from projects or other workplace activities to build their individual programme. Prior learning from experience or accredited courses may also be included for up to two-thirds of the programme, if this learning is relevant to agreed objectives. For example, students may want to combine modules from our postgraduate course portfolio, such as cancer studies; palliative care; public health; management in health and social care or higher professional education and others.

Entry requirements

UK first degree or equivalent overseas degree from a recognised institution, or an equivalent professional or other qualification applicable to health and social care; applicants should normally be registered as a health or social care professional; applicants whose 1st language is not English must demonstrate that their level of English is appropriate for study at postgraduate level; for this course there is a minimum of IELTS 6.5.

Course modules

Modules may include: credit gained from previous certificated courses of study or modules; learning through experience; taught modules that can be selected from a wide range of options; work-based learning projects; units studied at another institution. When selecting the elements of their programme, students will be guided by academic advisers to ensure that they meet the aims they have identified. Following discussion with their adviser, students' programme of achieved credit and planned study will be coherent, in that all the parts must relate to each other and must be directly relevant to the title of the award sought.

Assessment methods

The teaching, learning and assessment strategies are determined by the content of the planned programme. In the case of work-based learning or independent study, teaching, learning and assessment are negotiated between the student and their academic adviser/supervisor and, in the case of work-based learning projects, their employer.
