  • Post qualifying framework


Our Post Qualifying Framework (PQF) offers health and social care practitioners an opportunity to improve patient care through personal, professional and academic development. Students can select modules from a comprehensive and contemporary range of modules that fit their personal development and career plans; either on an individual basis or combined in a planned programme to eventually achieve a degree.


Credits from modules can be used to gain the BSc (Hons) Professional Practice qualification.
