About the course
Develop your knowledge and skills as a tutor, educator and researcher.
Our Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and MSc in Health Professions Education are designed especially for health professionals who work in education. Whether you work in medicine, nursing, midwifery, radiography, physiotherapy, pharmacy, dentistry, or another health profession, this course covers a variety of topics that will be of interest to you.
You will gain an expert understanding of curriculum design, delivery, assessment, feedback, leadership and research approaches to education across the health professions. This programme will enhance your professional credibility and confidence in teaching and practice.
These programmes offer flexibility from the outset: You can study at your own pace progressing from Certificate to Diploma to Masters of Science. You can choose to study either distance learning which is 100% online or blended learning which includes one face-to-face study day per module.
For students studying more than one stage at once, the fee is added together - £9,630.
