A wide selection of modules is available from our MSc programmes for individuals who wish to undertake them as a short course of study. These modules enable participants to update their skills, enhance career development and study alongside health professionals from other institutions.
Please note that places are offered on individual MSc modules subject to spaces being available as priority is given to our MSc students.
The link below shows all the modules offered by the School. Module specifications provide full details about the aims and objectives of each module, what you will study, how the module is assessed and whether there are any prerequisites that have to be met before registering for the module.
Each module takes place once per year. Teaching for Term 1 modules usually occurs over ten weeks, and five weeks for Terms 2 and 3 modules. The time students are required to attend the School will vary according to the teaching strategy of the module, but will usually be 20-45 hours for Term 1 modules and 50-60 hours for Terms 2 and 3 modules. Learning time, including reading, is estimated to be 150 hours per module.
The module specification indicates the timetable slot (AB1, C1 etc.) for the module, which corresponds to the below terms and teaching times. See term dates.
