Where applicants do not hold a first degree, applications will be considered on an individual basis. For such applicants, evidence of relevant experience and continued professional development will be requested.

Note: International students pursuing part-time programmes of study are not eligible for Tier 4 (General Student) visas and must have alternative leave to remain in the UK if they intend to study at the University in person.

Rhagor o wybodaeth am ofynion Iaith Saesneg.

Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen fisa Haen 4 i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

The MSc in Advanced Practice programme is modular and students must complete four modules (30 credits each) in the taught component of the course; one of these is a compulsory research module (HCT118 Research methods and health improvement in health and social care) and the remaining three modules are of the student’s choice. Those who pursue the generic pathway would, on successful completion, be awarded a MSc in Advanced Practice.

Those registered on a specialist named pathway would choose their modules from those offered within the specific pathway. Each specialist pathway outlines the compulsory and optional modules available within it.

The specialist pathways attached to this scheme are:

  • MSc in Advanced Practice (Non-Medical Prescribing).
  • MSc in Advanced Practice (Education for Health Professionals).
  • MSc in Advanced Practice (Community Studies).

The part-time route would commence in September of Year 1 and normally be completed within 4 years. During this time modules will be programmed so that 2 modules can normally be undertaken in Year 1. This enables the student to complete and submit their dissertations within 4 years of initial registration on to the programme.

Stand Alone Modules

Students may also undertake specific modules within the MSc. in Advanced Practice programme as ‘stand-alone’ modules. These may be undertaken as and when available within the School by students who wish to gain expertise and knowledge in a given subject area, but who do not wish to register for the degree programme.

They would be undertaken outside of registration for a degree and students would be informed on application of the RPL regulations as previously mentioned should they later wish to register for the full MSc degree. Priority for places will always be given to those students registered for the Masters programme.

Most of our modules are available on a stand-alone basis. Some modules from both Allied Health Professions (AHP) and Nursing and Midwifery are shared across professions. Please contact the relevant module leader for more details.

There are a range of optional and programme specific modules available. Your programme team will guide you in identifying and selecting the appropriate and available modules.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

The notion of adult learning will inform the learning and teaching process and a range of learning and teaching methods will be utilised to achieve the learning outcomes of the programmes. Students will enter the programmes with a wide range of skills and experiences and some may hold senior positions. These experiences will be used to enhance the learning process.

Post graduate degree level study involves students taking responsibility for their own learning and this will be encouraged throughout the programme. The learning and teaching strategy will take notice of this and methods used will range from tutorials, to student led seminars, dialogue, problem based learning, appreciative inquiry, skills workshops, self-directed study, discussion and debate and expert led lectures.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

The University offers a wide range of services and activities designed to support students. These include a student counselling service, a student advisory service, crèche and day facilities, sport and exercise facilities, as well as campus information, library and IT services.

This programme gives you the opportunity to share ideas with health professionals. As well as developing your own intellectual abilities, this sharing of ideas enables you to learn and benefit from the experiences of others. Opportunity is given for this sort of discussion and exchange of ideas through seminars and tutorials.

All students are given a named personal tutor following registration onto the programme, who is able to assist them with any pastoral care as well as advice on writing style, grammar and academic mentoring.

All modules within the programme make extensive use of Cardiff University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Learning Central, on which students will find course materials, links to related materials and assessment exemplars.

For students whose first language is not English there are open access English Language courses available. These are 5 week courses run on a first come first served basis and cost an administration fee of £25.

Feedback

We will provide you with feedback on your work in a variety of formats. These will include oral feedback during lectures, written feedback provided through online module discussion forums, and electronic written feedback on assessed coursework through GradeMark.  You can discuss your overall performance with your personal tutor.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

The assessments used within the MSc programme relate to the measurement of professional, academic and where appropriate clinical practice. This includes written work such as reflective narratives, evidence based literature reviews, essays and research critiques, examinations, case study analysis, practical tests, oral presentations, seminars, video and playback, tape recordings, viva, dissertations, project work and completion of portfolios.

Each assessment is accompanied by written guidelines and assessment criteria based on the QAA Code of Practice for assessments (QAA 2006). Wherever possible a proforma is produced to accompany a summative assessment. This may be in the form of marking criteria, competencies to be achieved, standards etc. with clear guidelines relating to what is being assessed. This correlates with the learning outcomes of the programme/module.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

The transferable/ key skills which students will have developed through undertaking this programme of study are:

  • Integrate theory with professional practice.
  • Synthesise information/ data from a variety of sources.

The MSc in Advanced Practice is designed for health, social care and related professionals in primary, secondary and tertiary settings who wish to advance their knowledge base, clinical, leadership and management skills.
