Credit bearing modules

At the College of Medicine and Health we are committed to providing an outstanding and accessible education. We seek to provide our community of postgraduate students with an environment in which they can study flexibly and we offer opportunities to undertake Standalone Modules or Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities are designed to help you develop the advanced skills and knowledge you need to make a positive contribution to the delivery of care. Our CPD portfolio allows you to undertake a module without the need to complete an assessment. For more information please visit our CPD page.

Students who wish to complete assessments and accrue credits, can review our Standalone Modules, below. A number of modules within our MSc programmes are available to complete individually, and credits achieved can be used towards gaining a Certificate, Diploma or Masters award.
