MSc in the Clinical Management of Pain

Entry requirements

This programme is suitable for graduates from a variety of health care backgrounds.

You should have a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in medicine (MBChB or equivalent), dentistry, nursing, psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, pharmacology, osteopathy, chiropractic and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of pain.  In addition, applicants must demonstrate experience of working with pain patients for a period of at least three months. This information should be contained in your referee's letter.

If you do not hold a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, we may also consider your application if you have experience of working directly with pain patients or a closely related area for at least 3 years. In such cases, you may be admitted to postgraduate certificate level only in the first instance. Your experience and any related information should be contained in your referee's letter.
