A new postgraduate course which gives healthcare professionals the chance to advance their practice skills has been launched by the University.

Run by the School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies, the MSc in Advanced Practice will allow practitioners from backgrounds such as health, social care and relevant professions, to develop specialist skills in their field of practice.

The new programme offers generic and specialist educational opportunities in areas including acute and chronic conditions, child health, mental health and midwifery as well as leadership and management.

Emphasis of the course is on independent learning in a research-led environment, enabling students to access the latest evidence base on professional practice. At the end of the course students will have developed new skills to a high level and built up a bank of expertise and advanced knowledge in their subject.

The School is holding an open day for health social care and relevant professionals to find out more about the MSc in Advanced Practice, and the range of postgraduate opportunities available.

The Open Day takes place on Wednesday 7 May from 2pm-6pm at the Heath Park Campus. No booking is necessary and further details can be provided by School Lecturer Rhian Barnes -
