Traditional health and social care roles are changing. There’s a shift away from conventional roles towards partnership working across the health and social care sectors.

This is a new part-time course, responding to the evolving health and social care devolution landscape. It focuses on developing the leadership skills needed to deliver integrated health and social care services.

This part-time masters degree is designed to support you in understanding the needs of your service users. To empower you to work with your clients to solve the challenges to health and wellbeing. To help you focus on service redesign and quality improvements.

You’ll gain an understanding of the issues you might face working across an integrated health care sector (in both primary and secondary care), and develop leadership skills linked to key factors impacting on collaborative service provision, such as health inequality.

Course details

Through this part-time masters course, we aim to develop emerging leaders in integrated community care.

You’ll study core units, critically analysing topics from inequality and discrimination across communities to leadership theories and develop ideas to address specific local needs.

As well as the core units, you’ll typically study two option units. Topics you might explore include the influence of physical activity on health, and the economic evaluation of health care systems and health care reforms.

If you’re not sure you can fit studying around your other commitments, you can exit this course with an interim award instead of a masters degree.

To gain the MSc in Integrated Community and Healthcare Leadership, you’ll need to complete 180 credits at Level 7.

You’re awarded a postgraduate certificate (PgCert) when you complete 60 taught credits, and a postgraduate diploma (PgDip) for 120 taught credits.
