It is a requirement that you have:
- a degree (FHEQ Level 6 / SCQF Level 9), conferred by a UK university or other recognised degree-awarding body
- access to a setting related to healthcare
- spoken and written English of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum overall score of 6 and minimum score of 5.5 in each of the four components: reading, writing, speaking and listening under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Please see the IELTS website for details.
You are strongly advised to study no more than this one 60-credit module in the same year.
If you have any doubt about the suitability of the course, please speak to an adviser.
No assumptions are made regarding your understanding of healthcare improvement, leadership or other areas covered by this module. It will be useful though, to begin a learning journal in which you note areas of your own experience you feel are relevant to healthcare improvement, and any useful material you find in the media or other sources. Sensitising yourself in this way will help you to explore concepts more fully in the course.
