Programme Description

Our innovative programme offers advanced study for nurses working within an international and UK health care context. The programme is part time, fully online, and has been designed with professionals in mind; the online delivery format and part-time study options allow for nursing professionals to develop knowledge and practice whilst continuing to meet individual life and work demands.


We offer the flexibility for students to choose either a broad programme of study by drawing on international expertise across the breadth of the university, or to focus on a more specialised area of nursing care. We recognise that mental health and trauma-informed care is an under-developed area in advanced practice for Adult nurses and so we are delighted to offer our students the opportunity to choose option courses in these areas, as well as our core courses in nursing and global health policy, political leadership and research. Students can choose a range of option courses* within Nursing Studies including leadership, public health, policy, person-centred care and clinical decision making. Health and social care research underpin the whole programme. The programme is suitable for both newly graduated and more experienced nurses who are registered to practise in their own country and want to critically examine the ways that research, theory and knowledge can advance nursing in the global context. The degree provides an excellent foundation for postgraduate research e.g. a doctoral degree, or to advance their professional career. 
* Please note that option courses can change each year and these are indicative only.
