PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

  • This programme is delivered online. The MSc consists of 10 core courses plus a dissertation. There are two exit points, the Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) and the Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert)*.

    The PGDip consists of 10 courses only. The PGCert consists of a blend of clinical and non-clinical courses totalling 60 credits.

    Learning is done exclusively via a state-of-the-art Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) with emphasis on the research and governance principles which underpin contemporary practice, as well as leadership and management skills.

    The MSc/PGDip courses in Year 1 are designed to introduce the academic skills required to complete the course and apply evidence based practice. The students will also start the in depth exploration of core clinical subjects in Critical Care and begin to produce independent reports/essays for submission online.

    In Year 2 students will further enhance their knowledge of core Critical Care subjects and be introduced to leadership & management principles as well as clinical governance and quality Improvement in Critical Care.

    In Year 3, MSc students will write a dissertation around a topic of their choice allowing them to use the skills of academic enquiry learned.

    There will be opportunities to discuss clinical cases, policies, management pathways, research and other aspects with world leaders in the field of Critical Care education and the opportunity to form professional ties with them.
