Here you can review the course structure for Medical Education and register module choices for your chosen course of study.

Our Masters in Medical Education is designed for experienced clinical professionals who have responsibility for education and training, the programme covers the principles and methods of teaching and learning and their application to healthcare, providing the skills needed to plan and deliver successful teaching and learning sessions.

Elements of the course are accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA). The first module, 'Essentials of Clinical Education', is accredited against Descriptor 1 (Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, AFHEA) and the Postgraduate Certificate is accredited against Descriptor 2 (Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, FHEA). The course is only able to be taken part-time only and is thus flexible, and its modular structure allows you to study over three years, starting with the Post Graduate Certificate in the first year, progressing to the Post Graduate Diploma in the second and then going on to the MSc stage in the third.

The whole MSc will total 180 CATS, made up of 60 CATS for the Certicate stage, 120 CATS for the Diploma and 180 CATS for the full MSc. All of the required modules in each year must be taken before a student is allowed to progress to the next year of study.
