Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

Bydd ein rhaglen yn apelio at y rhai sydd am ymchwilio i hanfodion addysg effeithiol ar gyfer y proffesiynau iechyd mewn lleoliad deinamig, ysgogol a chefnogol.

We are committed, through our MSc in Medical Education, to promoting excellence in learning and teaching for health professionals. Having established the first Masters in Medical Education in the UK, we continue to lead, providing innovative programmes for all medical, dental and health professionals who aim to professionalise the role of the clinician as teacher.

This course recognises the diverse, complex and challenging contexts of both those new to educator roles and responsibilities and those with considerable years of experience. The overall aim of the course is to develop a community of educators committed to promote improvements in both ‘what’ and ‘how’ we teach future healthcare professionals.

The course is highly practical and aims to model best practice in learning and teaching and draws upon a wide range of innovative approaches to learner support and development.  A comprehensive series of face-to-face modules will enable you to contribute to critical dialogues that promote deeper insights into educational theory and principles applied to clinical practice.  This allows ample time to reflect on your own practice and to share experience and new insights with colleagues.

The MSc component of the course follows the successful completion of the modules. This component of the course will allow you to develop skills in designing and conducting an educational project, culminating in the submission of a dissertation. Many of the projects provide the basis for practical innovations in the workplace and can also extend engagement with and contribution to the wider medical education community.

Strwythur y cwrs

The full-time MSc course involves studying all the modules in one academic year (September-June) and acceptance of an approved dissertation (July-September). Successful completion of the modules will allow you to progress to the MSc component and undertake an educational project culminating in the submission of a dissertation.

Modules usually last two days each followed by a period of independent study.  The first session of each two-day unit is a synthesis of the previous module and the independent study period. This three stage process develops and clarifies understanding of the module topic, gives the opportunity and time to apply new concepts and skills, and concludes by allowing reflection on and sharing of experiences and insights with colleagues.

The culmination of the modules is a practical teaching project, a student-led symposium on a contemporary issue in medical education.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.

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.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

Teaching on the modules mainly takes place in small groups, which are facilitated by the core teaching team. There is the opportunity for discussions, debates, instructor presentations, tutorials, case studies and peer interactions designed to enhance learning in addition to guided and independent study. Participation, collaboration and practical application are key features of the course, and you will be encouraged to try out new approaches to learning and teaching. Synthesising your knowledge and applying theory to practice within your own clinical teaching setting will be a central requirements of both formal assessments and formative work.  Opportunities to develop your team working and collaboration skills will be available through tasks, activities and general engagement in debate and exploration with tutors and peers.

The dissertation stage will require the completion of a small scale empirical or literature-based study. You will be allocated a supervisor to support your study following successful completion of the modules.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

You will be assessed in a variety of ways both to inform learning (formative) and to assess learning (summative) and all assignment tasks are linked to your educational practise  For example, typical assignments may relate to designing and producing some instructional media for a specific teaching need you identify, critically reviewing an assessment method you use, reflecting on your experience of  participating in peer review of teaching, designing a research proposal for an educational project in your clinical teaching context.

Satisfactory standard in the modules is required for progress on to the dissertation.  This stage will require the completion of a small scale empirical or literature based study, culminating in the submission of a dissertation.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor who will support your progress on the course, monitoring your general progress, discussing relevant issues and providing advice, guidance and support.  There are a variety of practical tasks and activities to allow you to explore and discuss a range of educational issues and engage in a variety of group activities with tutors and peers. Personal tutors will comment on your reflective journal, and this exchange is an opportunity for you to engage in a dialogue about your educational roles, responsibilities and experiences in your clinical setting.

You will also be allocated a supervisor to support your study during the dissertation stage.


You will receive written feedback on all your assignments and dissertation, in addition there are many opportunities throughout the course to receive peer and tutor feedback.

At the start of the course you will complete a practice assignment, designed to help you appreciate the nature of the course requirements and inform your learning/development. In addition you will receive formative feedback via learning contract activity, reflective journal entries, teaching observations, tutorials and peer review.

Module synthesis sessions will also often entail giving a brief report or presentation to colleagues about the relevance of a module to your own context; discuss specific educational challenges to inform improvements and educational change. 

During the dissertation component you will have an opportunity to receive feedback on the project design and draft dissertation chapters.

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

 The overall aims of the course are to help you:
