Delivery & Design
The MSc in Quality and Safety in Healthcare Management programme is designed to facilitate staff working in the health service. The MSc is a part-time programme delivered using a combination of classroom contact days supported by online learning and tutorials. The Postgraduate Diploma requires completion of six learning modules each requiring three contact days.
The MSc Degree requires the completion of a dissertation in addition to the six learning modules undertaken in year one. The Postgraduate Diploma is worth 60 credits and requires completion of the six modules in year one. Most participants complete the Postgraduate Diploma in one academic year and the MSc Degree in two academic years.
Given the time constraints on participants, the programmes are flexible and can be completed over a five-year period.
