Institution Queen's University Belfast
Department School of Nursing and Midwifery
Study type Taught


This 16 month taught Masters programme nurtures talented and innovative professional practitioners, placing practice at the forefront. The programme is delivered through nine specialist pathways, enabling students from different professional backgrounds to review and update their practice and benefit from shared learning and then contribute to improving the quality and effectiveness of health and social care provision globally.

This programme produces exceptional practitioners who have: • Skills necessary to promote and enhance innovative and emerging practice • Intellectual and transferable skills necessary in positions of leadership • Skills enabling the review and application of contemporary evidence to practice

The programme and pathways will appeal to practitioners working in a wide range of practice areas who are committed to their own personal and professional development. Graduates of this programme move into senior practice roles, management and leadership positions, or progress onto a career in research or education.

The specialist pathways are:

MSc (Critical and Acute Care) MSc (Cancer Nursing: Supportive and Palliative Care) MSc (Leadership and Management) MSc (Mental Health Care) MSc (Care of Older People) MSc (Midwifery Care) MSc (Care of Children & Young People) MSc (Intellectual Disabilities) MSc (Practice Education)

Admission to a specialist pathway often requires students to be working in a related area. The Programme Co-ordinator will provide individual advice on module choices.

The programme is offered on a full-time basis only and combines face-to-face teaching with online delivery.

We work closely with our local Healthcare providers to design bespoke clinical experiences for our Masters students. Each student will undertake 225 hours' clinical experience in a setting relevant to their studies to allow them to develop their ideas to completion. Students work within regional centres of excellence, and many develop contacts and friendships that continue throughout their careers.

There is an additional fee of £3000 for placements.
