Normally students may enter Level 7 study having completed a qualification at Level 6, which is equivalent to an undergraduate degree.
Applications from those who have no previous level 6 study will be considered on an individual basis but will first need to meet with the admissions tutor, Aileen Wilson, to discuss their application.
If you have non-UK academic qualifications you will need to supply evidence of comparability. The organisation ECCTIS will supply this for a reasonable fee https://www.enic.org.uk/Qualifications/SOC/Default.aspx.
You should also have current professional registration (e.g NMC, HCPC etc) and be employed as a health care professional in an appropriate setting.
The emphasis in this module will be on the use and relevance of research skills in assessing, developing and evaluating practice. A variety of secondary sources of quantitative and qualitative information will be examined in the context of evidence based practice.
The assessment for this module will be:
- Coursework 1, 100% - A research proposal/ essay which examines how knowledge of research may be used to refine understanding/ address a clinical issue.
