This programme is designed to enable you to further develop your knowledge of current health care at the depth and breadth appropriate to Masters level work. In planning the programme and its delivery, we have sought to create a student-centred, flexible programme that enables you to select modules that meet your individual learning needs, career aspirations and interests.
The scope and flexibility of the programme will appeal to individuals with a theoretical interest in health-related issues, and is particularly suited to those who are seeking a non-clinical programme of study. The programme is open to health care professionals or individuals with an interest in health.
As the programme is designed around an individual student’s personal, academic and professional development, it is a platform for students to enhance their knowledge and skills with their capacity for applying this new knowledge across new settings. Outcomes are evaluated through academic success and attainment, subsequent graduate development, future career choice and professional enhancement destinies reported when learners have completed their course of study. Typically, students graduating with the MSc Health Studies seek the following opportunities.
We recognise that as a postgraduate student you are likely to have specific requirements when it comes to planning for your next career step. Employers expect postgraduates to have a range of skills that exceed their subject knowledge. Careers Network offers a range of events and support services that are designed for all students, including postgraduates looking to find their niche in the job market.Here are just a few ways in which we can help postgraduates to get ahead:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Admission to the programme is on the basis that applicants will have a BSc/BA Honours degree or equivalent. (Evidence of equivalence of your qualification(s) to the UK educational system of awards can be found. The degree should normally be a first- or upper second-class Honours degree.
You will also need to submit the following documentation in support of your application:
English to IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.0 in each component) or TOEFL Internet based 88 overall with no less than no less than 21 in Reading, 20 in Listening, 22 in Speaking, 21 in Writing.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
