A Postgraduate Certificate Enhancing Clinical Practice and Postgraduate Diploma Advanced Clinical Practice award are available as intermediate exit awards only. These are intended for students who have studied modules within the MSc ACP but have decided not to or are unable to continue their studies through to completion of the full MSc award. This decision may also be based on availability of funding. In response to student and employer feedback and learning from similar course curriculum, a taught third year replaces the traditional 60 credit Dissertation. This comprises three 20 credit Level 7 modules. Students completing the PgDip award will have achieved the "threshold" standard set by HEE (2017) for the level of advanced clinical practice. However, this approach enables students to build on this by extending the period of support for successful consolidation and further optimisation of the four pillars of advanced level of practice.
