Qualifications and Experience

We welcome applications from those with an educational role in relation to healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, dentists, veterinary practitioners, or associated scientists (biomedical or social).  You should:

  • Have a primary clinical qualifcation such as an MBChB, BVS, BDS, Bachelor of Nursing, or their international equivalents; or an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject.
  • Currently be teaching in clinical or educational settings.

We will also consider your application if you have a  professional qualification not at degree level, such as Registered General Nurse, with appropriate clinical experience.

Personal Statement

You must include a personal statement with your application. This should include details of why you want to undertake the programme, the qualifications, experience and attributes you bring to the programme, and how it fits with your future career plans (300-500 words).

The statement must include details of your experience of teaching health professionals.  This experience must have been gained since graduation and may involve any level of student or post graduate training.  The courses and assignments that make up the programme ask you to draw on your teaching and integrate it with theory; this is difficult if you have limited experience.  If information on your teaching is limited, the programme team will need to contact you for more details; this may delay a decision on your application which could be critical if the programme is nearly full. 

Please write your personal statement carefully as these are scrutinised by the programme team during the applicant selection process.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

If you have previous postgraduate study in a related field, please contact us to discuss your route into the programme.
