Together, these online distance learning programmes offer maximum flexibility to busy health professionals who want to learn about theoretical and practical aspects of learning, teaching and assessment, and apply them in the context of their professional practice. The programmes share a common first year curriculum, with 1 x 20-credit course per semester. Thereafter, students may focus to a greater or lesser extent on various topics in health professions education, selecting from a menu of optional 10-credit courses. The MSc HPE programme is designed for those who primarily identify themselves as practitioners and who want to apply educational theory and an evidence base to their specific health professions education context. The MSc HPE (with Research) programme is appropriate for those with a particular interest in learning about the design, conduct and governance of education research.
