What are the best things about your course?

The peer network that you formulate with fellow students from all across the areas of healthcare to include, physiotherapists, pharmacists and nurses to name a few, was invaluable support during the course of the programme. Every student had their own individual professional experiences that they shared on the course which was fascinating to hear and learn from.

Why did you choose to study your current course?

I needed to study a MSc to progress in my career and the Advanced Clinical Practice course provided me with the clinical, leadership/ management and research areas of practice that I needed to develop in. The course has been structured well to provide in depth teaching and direction on how to gain the most experience in all these areas.
