Study type Taught


The aim of the programme is to develop autonomous reflective practitioners who are engaged in advanced practice within a range of organisational and professional settings. The programme promotes critical appraisal of the theory and application of the relevant professional practice and develops a purposeful and self-directed approach to learning which will result in enhanced professional practice. It aims to promote critical appraisal of the theory and application of the relevant professional practice and provides participants with an opportunity to develop their critical skills and scientific understanding to enable them to develop into effective and reflective practitioners.

The MSc Advanced Practice is a generic programme with specific pathways and can lead to the award of the specifically named degree:

•MSc Advanced Practice (Audiology)

•MSc Advanced Practice (Dietetics)

•MSc Advanced Practice (Musculoskeletal Studies)

•MSc Advanced Practice (Speech and Language Therapy)

Further information on each pathway can be found in the Pathway Specific Modules tab below.

It is intended that the programme provides for flexible, variable progression that is responsive to student and employer continuous professional learning needs and the constantly changing practice environment.

Any modules at Level 7 (Masters level) studied elsewhere, that meet the learning needs of the student, can be incorporated into the module mix via the Recognising Prior Learning (RPL) procedure. In addition, it is recognised that many professions engage with CPD activities which are not credit rated. The Reflection on Prior Learning module is a 20 credit level 7 generic option module where students can use relevant CPD activities to critically reflect on those experiences and produce a reflective statement and portfolio.

The programme has been designed to meet the four pillars of Advanced Practice.

The modules will be delivered in a blended learning pattern (blocks of teaching with on-line resources) as far as possible.

Please Note: Applicants must normally be able to demonstrate a minimum of 2 years recent and relevant experience in an appropriate setting. Applicants for the Dietetics pathway should be registered Dieticians with the Health and Care Professions Council and applicants for the Speech and Language Therapy pathway should be registered Speech and Language Therapists with the Health and Care Professions Council.
