Student Destinations

Our MSc portfolio is designed to support students in achieving their career aspirations beyond their initial roles. While almost all of our students are already in professional roles, students who have completed our masters programmes in the past have gone on into management and other promoted posts as well as specialist roles such as hospital at night and clinical governance leads.

The core requirements of research and professional modules within the programmes ensure that graduates are equipped with a range of key transferable skills that promote excellence, innovation and leadership in practice. Our aim is to help students become the leaders and experts of the future in health and social care, to be adaptable, confident and challenging in their approach, and to become the change agents in their professions.
