Specialised Awards in Health & Medical Sciences

Specialised awards in Health & Medical Sciences are designed for students who wish to focus on a specific domain, and their specialised study can then be reflected in the name of the qualification that they receive.

The intention is to develop a range of specialised awards at three levels:

  • Specialised Postgraduate Certificate in Health & Medical Sciences
  • Specialised Postgraduate Diploma in Health & Medical Sciences
  • Specialised MSc in Health & Medical Science

Each specialised award will require students to select their modules from a restricted range of modules in the module library.

  • For a specialised postgraduate certificate, students will take the programme core module (Healthcare Quality & Evidence Based Practice) and three others from a restricted subject-related list.
  • For a specialised postgraduate diploma, students will take the same core module, a minimum of four from the restricted list and the remaining three are free choices from the module library.
  • For a specialised MSc, students will take the core module, a minimum of four from the restricted list and the remaining three are free choices from the module library. The MSc dissertation topic must also be related to the title of the specialised award.

At present, UCL is offering the entry-level specialised award - Postgraduate Certificate - in Quality, Information & Safety.
