Postgraduate and post-qualifying courses

Postgraduate and post-qualifying courses are available to graduates who hold a first degree and may or may not be registered with a professional healthcare body such as the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Explore our post-qualifying courses by theme.

We currently offer post-qualifying courses at MastersPostgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and Bachelors (Hons) levels of study.


Our range of Masters programmes are designed to supplement your undergraduate learning with a focus on leadership and management skills, developing an in depth understanding of your chosen specialist fields and for some of our courses, developing practice-based clinical skills. Our students leave us fully equipped to deal with the challenges of a healthcare profession in public sector, community and private practice settings.
