Interested? To learn more about this study programme, entry requirements and application process, please contact one of our consultants in a country nearest to you.
On the standard pathway you will begin by studying the research for evidence-based practice module.
This forms the foundation for your independent study and provides you with the skills to search for and appraise research evidence in areas of interest.
The remaining credits can be accumulated by you in a variety of ways:
Firstly, you may complete one third of the course by demonstrating an appropriate level of prior learning.
Then you have the chance to select any module offered by us at the Faculty of Health Sciences, providing it relates to your other chosen modules.
You can also choose to undertake one or more work-based learning modules, during which you will design a programme of work and method of assessment.
Finally, you can take one or more open-learning modules, during which you will again design a programme of academic study and method of assessment.
Mental Health Pathway
On the mental health pathway you will begin by studying the research for evidence-based practice module.
As stated above, this forms the foundation for your independent study and provides you with the skills to search for and appraise research evidence in areas of interest.
You will then study a number of core and option modules, which may include: perspectives in mental health; low intensity C.B.T. assessment; low intensity C.B.T. Interventions and relational therapies.
Furthermore, you may choose a module offered by us at the Faculty of Health Sciences, including open or work-based options.
Neonatal studies pathway
This neonatal studies pathway was developed within the MSc Health Sciences postgraduate programme to enable experienced practitioners to enhance their independent and critical thinking skills.
The pathway includes two online core modules that are compulsory. These are ‘Research Methods and Evidence-Based Practice’ and the ‘Dissertation’ module.
In addition, the opportunity exists to take the online open module and a number of neonatal-specific modules, including ‘Neonatal Neurology’ and ‘Neonatal Respirology’.
The neonatal masters degree pathway will normally be delivered fully online within a specially designed virtual learning environment (VLE).
From this portal you will have access to the modules, your cross-cultural learning group and your online tutors, plus a general and subject specific online library, an image gallery and an Assessment Office.
Please note, if you would prefer to have paper copies of the neonatal studies lectures to support your masters in health sciences learning, then you may download these as PDF files for printing.
