The MSc in Health and Social Care Management is designed to meet the needs of those working in health and welfare services as practitioners, managers, or administrators. A particular feature of this program’s curriculum is its focus on policy, management, and collaborative working structures. Considering the changing and dynamic nature of health and social care in the new mixed economy of welfare, our course opens up new employment horizons for you.
This program will:
- Extend and progress the knowledge and skills you already have and how you may apply them to your own individual setting
- Enable you to assess and support the impact your actions will have on practice
- Provide an opportunity to respond to emerging career pathways allowing you to tailor your learning needs in a flexible and creative way
The health and social care workforce is required to have a wide range of specific and transferable skills and this program offers you the diversity and flexibility that will help you hone these skills.
Full Time (Day or Evening Classes): 18 months

Module Teaching & Assessment for all modules except Dissertation
The module will normally have the following assessment regime:
– Written examination: this will typically account for some 40% of the final grade and takes the form of a written examination under controlled conditions.
– Individual Essay(s): this will typically account for some 40% of the final grade and takes the form of a specialised essay. Students will be required to explore an emerging trend or topic within the theory and practice of the module discipline. This will require an extensive search of the relevant academic and practitioner-based literature and students will need to make reference to both academic and industrial/practitioner sources in their written work.
– Group work: this will typically account for some 20% of the final grade and takes the form of a report. A selection of the groups will be invited to present or pitch at the end of the module to a panel.
Module Teaching & Assessment for Dissertation
Each student will be allocated a supervisor who will help them with the development of their project proposal, oversee progress with the project, comment as appropriate on draft materials produced by the student and be available to assist the student with the project, as appropriate.
The dissertation/major project is assessed via the production of a dissertation of some 10,000 to 12,000 words in length.
Where necessary, a viva voce will be conducted in those instances where the provisional mark is considered to be a marginal pass.
