The School's MSc programmes in London are all designed on a modular basis to provide maximum opportunity for student choice. A wide range of modules is available within these programmes and places are offered to individuals who wish to undertake them as short courses of study. These modules offer an opportunity for individuals to update their skills, enhance career development and study with health professionals from other institutions in a multicultural environment.
Spring and Summer Term modules are scheduled over two and a half days per week at the same time each week for five weeks. For Autumn Term modules, please refer to the individual module specification for the teaching schedule. The time students are required to be in attendance at the School will vary according to the teaching strategy of the module, but will usually be between 20 and 45 hours. Learning time, including reading, is estimated to be 150 hours for each module. Those modules in the same half of the week run concurrently and only one of these may be taken in any given year.
Modules take place from 9.00am Monday to 12.30pm Wednesday or from 2.00pm Wednesday to 5.00pm Friday, over the weeks in question, with the exception of the Autumn Term modules (please see individual module specifications for further details).
The School gives priority to the needs of students registering for Masters and Research Degrees, and so places on any module may be limited - early application is therefore advised.
Module Fees (2016/17)
Spring and Summer Term modules - £1,950 per module.
