MSc in Critical Care

Collaborative learning

Although entirely based off campus, students will benefit from collaborative peer learning. We will use a variety of interactive tools, including the virtual classroom, to create a community of learning.

Online learning is not an isolated way of studying. You will study alongside other students sharing experiences and ideas. There are many benefits to studying with others and our programme is designed to support this.

You will use a range of platforms to help you work in small groups with other students. These may include moderated discussion groups, as well as online chat sessions.

If you are not able to take part in a session, remember that they are recorded, and you can watch them at a time suitable to you.

Group work

The majority of courses will involve elements of group work. Students will:

  • work together to uncover learning in directed areas
  • discuss their learning in the context of their own healthcare system

Feel connected

On most courses, there will be weekly live contact time with members of the faculty so that students:

  • feel connected to the tutors on the programme

  • feel connected to each other

We have custom designed this innovative virtual intensive care unit to enable students to understand what it is like to work together in this environment. You  will complete a range of tasks collabaratively including:

  • assessing patients  

  • conducting ward rounds 

  • managing emergencies 

The virtual intensive care unit encourages bonding between the students, bridging and linking across the year group to create a community of practice.
