You should note that successful completion of Leading healthcare improvements (K827) and Researching and evaluating practice (K828) are both prerequisites for undertaking this module. As K827 is now discontinued and K828 will be available for the final time in October 2019, the exception is if a successful application for credit transfer is made to substitute for either K827 or K828.
It is a requirement that you have:
- a degree (FHEQ Level 6 / SCQF Level 9), conferred by a UK university or other recognised degree-awarding body
- access to a setting related to healthcare
- spoken and written English of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum overall score of 6 and minimum score of 5.5 in each of the four components: reading, writing, speaking and listening under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Please see the IELTS website for details.
If you have any doubt about the suitability of the module, please speak to an adviser.
Work designed to focus your plans on an appropriate aspect of practice should be conducted at the start of the module and with the guidance of your tutor. You will however benefit from considering aspects of practice you have explored in previous study that lend themselves to further enquiry.
