Community Health Practice
Seize a valuable opportunity to share knowledge in a multi-professional forum as you work towards an MSc in Community Health Practice. Tailor your studies to your personal and professional interests while reflecting on the place that your clinical practice occupies in relation to other community health disciplines.
A blended learning approach allows you to select from a range of modules studied on campus or via eLearn.
You’ll explore, develop and enhance your clinical practice, synthesising your professional expertise in relation to other disciplines contributing to community healthcare.
Why study with us
- Opportunities are available for inter-professional education and practice, for example with Allied Health Professionals who also follow two of the course modules.
- Each member of the team has their own specialty and you will benefit from their expertise.
- A major strength of the MSc in Community Health Practice course is the expertise of staff in facilitating shared learning across a range of community disciplines. This leads to the discussion of common issues and concerns and enables the sharing of good practice examples.
What you'll do
- You’ll have the opportunity to develop a portfolio tracking your professional and personal development.
- Guest speakers contribute to some of the modules. This ensures course involvement by employers and practitioners who are currently operating within the community health and social care environments.
- You’ll work closely with the course team to tailor your learning to meet your practice requirements while working flexibility at a pace that suits you.
Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
