Only certain Term 2 and Term 3 modules may be made available to external candidates in the academic year 2020/21.  Please check this web-page from mid-November 2020 onwards for a list of available modules and application deadlines.

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.
