Short Course Programme

Masters Level Modules

As part of the Short Course Programme the Medical School offers health professionals a wide range of modules which can be taken either as credit bearing or as non-credit bearing options. 

The modules on offer are constituents of the Health Professions Education programme. Students on the credit-bearing option will be required to complete an assessment for their module(s) earning them study credits which could be used to transfer onto the MSc Health Professions Education programme where further study could eventually lead to a Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma or a Masters qualification.   

Students on the non-credit-bearing option can take any of the marked modules in the Module Library below as standalone options without any assessment for their professional development. 

The module timetable contains the full list of modules for the academic year.

There are four entry points in the academic year each with its corresponding application deadline:
