Taught Masters Courses (M.Sc./P.Grad. Dip.)
The School of Nursing and Midwifery offers a comprehensive suite of nursing and midwifery courses in addition to a number of interdisciplinary courses suited to a range of health care professionals. We recognise the demands placed on healthcare professionals balancing work and education commitments and so our taught master courses are structured for minimum day release from practice. A blended learning approach is utilised in the delivery of theoretical content, including lectures, group discussion, Blackboard and self directed learning. The assessment process used is a combination of written and practical assignments.
It is expected that Year 1 of the part-time taught masters course will start with a full week from September annually and will continue with classes on the following Thursdays until December. It is expected that there will be a break then before it recommences in January and continues on Thursdays until the end of March or early April. There is some web-based learning involved.
Attendance in Year 2 of M.Sc. courses involves attending a selection of workshops run from September to March. These workshops are designed to support students as they progress through the various stages of their final year dissertation. Students will be free to attend any of the workshops on offer. At the end of Year 2, M.Sc. students will produce a dissertation on a chosen subject related to their field of study.
