A Short Course normally comprises 3 modules, which you can complete in one year as a part time course of study. On successful completion you will be awarded 60 CATs points at Level 3, and you may be eligible to progress onto our degree programmes.
The Short Courses in Health Studies aim to prepare you to meet the changes and challenges of health care delivery within the health service and independent sector. Modules within each Short Course are practice focused, thus helping you acquire enhanced knowledge and clinical skills appropriate to your area of practice. In addition, you will be provided with the opportunity to advance health care knowledge and develop analytical and academic skills.
Where a clinical skills component is included, there will be a requirement for support and supervision of an experienced practitioner in the student’s clinical area.
Please note that courses are subject to a minimum registration, so it is not usually possible to run all courses each year.
The Short Courses in Health Studies can normally be completed in 3 hours’ contact time per module per week for each 12 week semester over 2 semesters.
Candidates must normally hold a professional qualification. Note: Some modules require a specific professional qualification.
Applicants must hold at least a Diploma in Higher Education or 120 CAT points at level 2 (diploma level) for entry to Level 3 (degree level) study. Applicants who do not meet the entry requirements should contact the School for advice.
