Postgraduate taught courses 

Learn from some of the best

We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching. We have strong links between theory and practice, with active researchers across a broad range of specialisms teaching on our courses.

Our courses are delivered by a mixture of academic staff and clinical staff, who all bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to help you develop into an excellent healthcare practitioner.

A supportive community

Studying with us gives you the opportunity to meet a range of people at different stages throughout their education and professional career. This gives you the chance to learn from and support others in ways that benefit your own understanding and development.

In 2004, we developed our ‘Patients as Educators’ programme to give our students as much opportunity as possible to meet and learn from real patients. The programme is internationally recognised as the largest of its kind, with more than 800 patients and volunteers involved.

Clinical Skills Centre

Our Clinical Skills Centre is based at the Northern General Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the country. The centre contains mock clinical wards, resuscitation suites, simulated theatres and teaching rooms.

The facilities have been chosen to reflect what is currently used in the clinical workplace, and provide support for the teaching, learning and assessment of our students in a variety of clinical and simulated settings.

Support for online distance learners

Some of our courses can be studied via online distance learning, meaning that you would spend less time physically on campus compared to other students. As a distance learner, you’d benefit from a range of online learning materials, delivered via our virtual learning environment. These resources include the latest online and mobile applications to enhance your learning.
