Will I have a work placement?
You will be required to be working in clinical practice for a minimum of 20 hours a week. Part of this should constitute your work-based learning which will be in your area of practice organised by you and your employer.
How long is my placement?
You will need to demonstrate work-based learning throughout the three years of the programme.
What sort of careers do graduates pursue?
Graduates of this course will be equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and expertise to provide clinical leadership. You'll be adaptable and flexible in your approach to your role, and able to provide support, education and supervision to less-experienced colleagues. You will also have opportunities for career progression through promotion and/or service recognition schemes.
While there is no universally recognised definition, the NHS Career Framework equates advanced practice to Agenda for Change Level 7. This course is also offered as an apprenticeship (MSc Advanced Clinical Practitioner, Degree Apprenticeship).
Are internships available?
You have an option to undertake the apprenticeship route, which must be approved by your employer. At the end of the course, you would have a Master's qualification and an apprenticeship certificate.
Do you provide employability services?
Our services are designed to help you achieve your potential and support your transition towards a rewarding graduate career.
The Employability and Careers Service provides support when you are preparing to apply for placements and graduate roles. It includes CV clinics, mock interviews and employability skills workshops.
Each School also has its own Employability Officer, who works closely with the industry and will provide specific opportunities relevant to your own course.
