Postgraduate Courses

As a postgraduate student in the School of Health Sciences you will have the opportunity to study a range of topics to facilitate advanced clinical practice. You will be part of a school that is active in research across a wide range of health disciplines.  It is a stimulating place to learn and practice new skills and you will be in the company of healthcare professionals from a wide range of discipline.

The MSc Advanced Clinical Practitioner programme is the University of Liverpool’s first Level 7 apprenticeship.  It provides health care practitioners with the opportunity to develop the advanced skills required to independently manage holistic episodes of physical and mental health care in a range of settings.

The MSc Nursing programme aims to nurture innovative professional practitioners who want to develop their knowledge and develop within their specialist fields.  It provides a solid foundation for the further development of nursing careers and is suitable for nurses wishing to become specialist nurses, nurse managers, nurse educators and nurse researchers.

The MSc Radiotherapy is available to those therapeutic radiographers who already have a Postgraduate Diploma in Radiotherapy from the University of Liverpool or a pre-registration Postgraduate Diploma from another UK university that confers eligibility to apply for registration as a therapeutic radiographer with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).  The programme allows therapeutic radiographers to take a single 60 credit dissertation module which when combined with the credits from their Postgraduate Diploma provides sufficient credits for a full Masters award.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Radiotherapy is a full-time professional programme, approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Society and College of Radiographers, which allows graduates from a health, science, biomedical or social science background to register with the HCPC as a therapeutic radiographer.
