MSc/Pg Dip/Pg Cert Clinical Education

Programme Structure

The Masters in Clinical Education is an online, taught postgraduate programme, developed by the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and NHS Education for Scotland – South East Region.

The Postgraduate Certificate can be completed in 1 year part-time, the Postgraduate Diploma in 2 years part-time and the MSc in 3 years part-time.  The programme is very flexible and you may even opt to take time out if work or family life impact too much on study time.  There may also be some flexibility in the length of the programme of study, so please contact us if you would like to discuss this further.  

Our online programme involves the same level of work as our on-campus programmes and the qualification you receive, is of equal value.  

Completion of the Postgraduate Certificate, enables you to apply for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

The programme has been divided into a sequence of inter-related components, or courses.  Course material is delivered online via our dedicated website and we use Adobe Connect for online synchronous tutorials. Students use self-directed learning, peer-discussion boards, tutorials, peer presentations and other similar e-learning activities to engage with the course materials.

The programme has one intake per year, in September.
