Qualifications to suit you

We understand that considering a full Masters can be overwhelming. Why not build up gradually. Take a module and see how it feels before building up to a Certificate, Diploma and then a Masters. 

Equally, if you are a practising healthcare professional looking to further develop your knowledge and skills but don’t need an academic qualification, we’ve got you covered. Many of our Masters level modules are available on a stand-alone basis for CPD purposes and can be taken with or without credits.
