Study type Taught



The Advanced Practice (Distance Learning) programme allows you to complete a fully online MSc in Advanced Practice, offering flexibility in when and where you study, and accommodating your existing professional and personal commitments.

The programme reflects national and international benchmarks for advanced level professional practice for the healthcare workforce, while supporting you to build a personalised qualification around your own advanced professional practice needs. The programme and its modules are built around the four pillars of advanced practice (Clinical, Research, Education and Management/ Leadership) to advance your overall level of practice as well as developing you in your specific professional role.

A wide range of optional modules allow you to tailor the programme to the context of your own professional practice, enabling you to achieve optimal professional development.

About This Course

The overarching philosophy of the Advanced Practice (Distance Learning) programme is that advanced practice is all about reaching a level of practice, rather than a defined professional role. Suitable for all experienced health and care professionals, and open to both national and international applicants, it reflects professional, UK-wide government and international benchmarks for advanced level practice for the health and social care workforces. You will attain the contemporary knowledge and skills for advanced level practice.

Our aim is to help you to develop academic preparedness for an advanced-level professional practice role based on the four pillars of advanced practice – clinical, research, education and management/leadership – and the five key principles: autonomous practice, critical thinking, values-based care, improving practice, and high levels of decision-making and problem-solving. In addition to three core modules on the programme, you can select from a suite of optional modules that are relevant to your area of advanced practice. This allows you to tailor the course to your professional practice needs and across the pillars and principles of advanced practice. The emphasis of learning within each of the four pillars will be dependent on the modules you have selected. In this way, you can build a qualification specific to your individual requirements.
